The mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh said today that he will not tolerate garbage on roads and open spaces anymore.
"Our waste collectors will start collecting the garbage from 6 pm from households, and it will be taken to the Secondary Transfer Stations (STS). After that it will be transferred to the dump yard at Matuail," Taposh said while inaugurating the construction of an STS at Islambagh in Ward 29.
"We will construct one STS in 75 wards under DSCC. Our cleaners will start sweeping the roads from 9pm, so that by morning the streets of Dhaka will be completely clean," he said through a press release sent by DSCC.
Later he visited an under-construction STS in Malibagh, Ward no.12.
He inspected the road adjacent to Nagar Bhaban, Bangabazar, Anandabazar and Fulbaria bus stop-behind Nagar Bhaban and directed personnel to take necessary action to keep these roads operational by identifying the existing problems and crises.
