In Karachi, Spanish and Chinese companies would gather solid garbage

The Sindh government has struck a rubbish collection arrangement with Spanish and Chinese firms in district central and Korangi. Syed Murad Ali Shah, the Chief Minister of Sindh, presided over a gathering in Karachi on Monday to kick off the cleaning process in the metropolis.

Murtaza Wahab, a spokesperson for the Sindh government, said the Chinese company will handle solid waste management in Korangi, while the Spanish company would begin operations in Central Karachi. In the second week of August, the two companies will begin work in both locations.

The Sindh Solid Waste Management Board (SSWMB) began operations in the districts of southern and eastern Sindh in 2016. It began operations in the districts of Western, Keamari, and Malir in 2017.

Work in district central and Korangi will begin today, according to SSWMB MD Zubair Channa. He stated that the cleanup work would be outsourced to Karachi.

CM Murad Ali Shah stated that the businesses would collect solid trash from all municipal areas of the city and deposit it. He went on to say that the SSWMB was in charge of overseeing Karachi’s cleanup efforts. He added that work on a scheme to produce electricity from garbage would begin soon.

Later, Murtaza Wahab, Advisor to the Chief Minister of Sindh on Law and Environment and Sindh Government Spokesperson, tweeted that an agreement for solid waste collection in districts central and Korangi had been struck with Spanish and Chinese companies, respectively.
