Effective steps are being taken by the Lahore Waste Management Company to make the cleanliness of the city exemplary.

According to LWMC sources, Company's Chief Executive Officer Ali Annan Qamar on Thursday made a surprise visit to Allama Iqbal Town, Sabzazar and Samanabad to review the sanitation arrangements.

The town managers, zonal officers, and supervisors were severely reprimanded for the unsatisfactory cleanliness arrangements. Town Managers Mohsin Saboor and Maryam Salim were directed to improve their performance, while warnings were also issued to Zonal Officers Zahiruddin Babar, Salman, Usman and Nisar.

Town Manager Hira Nawaz Khan and Zonal officer Mian Irshad were confined to line for poor cleaning arrangements in Barkat Market and a deadline of 24-hour given to improve the cleaning arrangements. Ali Annan Qamar said that any negligence in cleaning of the city would not be tolerated.

All town managers should ensure cleanliness arrangements in commercial markets, he added.

Furthermore, the series of installation of three-bin systems in commercial markets was being continued.

It had been decided to take strict action against the illegal spreading and littering of garbage in commercial markets.
