LAHORE: The solid waste management and water stocktake took place on Wednesday. In the stocktake on clean water, it was discussed that the government of Punjab launched the clean water roadmap in 2015 for improving water quality and ensuring that the province’s 110 million citizens had access to clean and safe drinking water. In the urban sector, waste collection is carried out through seven waste management companies in Lahore, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Faisalabad, Multan and Bahawalpur. Operations of all seven WMCs are planned to be outsourced to private international contractors to improve operations. Out of the seven waste management companies, two have landfill sites; Lahore and Multan. For the rest, landfills are under process and their progress was discussed in the stocktake. WMCs without landfill sites have temporary disposal sites.
