Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) will be cleared of non-essential wires by December this year, its Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh said on Monday.
He said this to journalists after a meeting of the governing body of Dhaka Mohanogor Mohila College.
The mayor said that they are planning to make a master plan to prevent waterlogging in the city.
"Primarily, we have selected 10 water bodies under the city corporation. The reservoirs will be aesthetically pleasing as they will not be filled with garbage," Taposh said.
He urged city dwellers not to throw garbage in open spaces during the daytime.
"We have decided to keep all garbage and dustbins in a particular area in each ward. These containers and waste will be collected between 6pm and 10pm by cleaners," he added.
Taposh said first the roads and then the footpaths will be freed of illegal occupants.
