The mayor said, “660,000 polybags have been given to the victims to keep the waste. Now if someone puts meat in that polybag and throws the waste in the street or in the drain, it is a very sad event. I will now go to the area to see the overall situation. Somewhere, if there is garbage in front of someone’s house, I will not clean it. On the contrary, I will dump the garbage in a truck in front of the house. Urban cannot be dirty for a house or homeowner. The suffering of the people will not be tolerated.
Announcing that a special award would be given to the ward which has already completed the work of waste disposal, the mayor said, Ward councilors are on the ground. Competition has started among the councilors to clean up the waste.
Asking the victims not to dump their waste in the drains, he said, “Don’t throw the waste of the victims in the drains and close the drains.” Because, according to the forecast of the Meteorological Department, it may rain from tomorrow. If the drain is closed, rain water will not be able to flow. Then the city will be unclean.
Recalling the outbreak of dengue and Aedes mosquitoes, the mayor said rain and sunshine are the best time to breed Aedes mosquitoes. So for those who are planning to go home to the village with the sacrifice, they will see if there is water in the request tub, flower tub, old garage tires, bathroom commode, yoghurt pot etc. Somewhere so that the water does not freeze, so that the Aedes mosquito can not lay eggs.
The mayor further said that if there is any waste of sacrifice, it should be brought to the notice of the corporation by publishing it in the media. Apart from this, the city dwellers can also inform in the control room of the city corporation or through the Dhaka app. Corporation staff will quickly clean up that waste.
The mayor also said that 11,500 workers and 500 vehicles have started working in the field in Dhaka North City to clean up the waste. DNCC Chief Executive Officer Selim Reza, Chief Waste Management Officer Commodore M Saidur Rahman and other senior officials of the city corporation were present at the inauguration of the waste disposal program.
Apart from this, water spray mixed with liquid disinfectant has been arranged with 11 water bowsers to prevent environmental pollution, said DNCC. Besides, 8 lakh waste bags, 50 tons of bleaching powder and 1,005 cans of Savlon have been provided.
