No waste in open space after 2022: Mayor Tapas

Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh, Mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation, has announced that after 2022, there will be no more waste in Dhaka city.

The mayor was speaking to reporters after inaugurating the interim waste transfer center in wards 63 and 53 of South City on Wednesday.

Mayor Tapas said, “So far, we have completed the operation of 42 interim waste disposal centers.” The target is to complete the construction of waste transfer centers in 75 wards by this year. We have completed waste service collector registration in 65 wards. Through them we will collect waste and bring it to the interim waste transfer center. From there we will transfer the waste to Matuail Central Bhagar. So after 2022, there will be no more waste in the open space of Dhaka city.

Explaining the reason why Dhaka is at the bottom of the list of livable cities, Tapas said that the list of cities prepared on the basis of livability shows that Dhaka is at the bottom. One of the reasons for this is that waste is overflowing everywhere in Dhaka city, on the streets, inside and outside the sewers, canals and beels. There is waste everywhere in the open.

He said the rate of dengue patients in the South City Corporation area is at a low level, adding that there were only 10 dengue patients in the South City Corporation area yesterday. But we see that the spread of dengue has increased in the surrounding areas and other districts, including other areas of Dhaka. Although the number of dengue patients in the southern city has decreased, the number of dengue patients is increasing in different districts of the country. We will also start activities to prevent the spread of Culex mosquitoes from the 1st of next month.

Among others, Dhaka-5 MP Kazi Monirul Islam Manu, Dhaka-4 MP Syed Abu Hossain Babla, former MP Advocate Sanjida Khanam, Chief Waste Management Officer of the Corporation Air Commodore Sitwat Naeem and women councilors of the concerned wards and reserved seats. Was present.
