The agreements with the foreign firms were signed in the presence of the Chief Minister (CM) of Sindh, Murad Ali Shah, at the Chief Minister’s House.

The Chinese company will provide its services in the Korangi District, and the Spanish firm will work in the Karachi Central District.

The two foreign firms have been contracted by the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board (SSWMB), and will start work from the second week of August.

The Managing Director of the SSWMB, Zubair Channa, said that the municipal waste disposal work of the entire metropolis had been outsourced to foreign firms.

The SSWMB initially commenced solid waste disposal work in Karachi in 2016 in the Karachi South District and the Karachi East District.

Later onwards, the garbage collection work was expanded to the Karachi West District, the Keamari District, and the Malir District.

The newly-appointed Karachi Administrator, Murtaza Wahab, confirmed the development and expressed satisfaction over a uniform system of waste collection in the metropolis.

It is pertinent to note that more than 14,000 tons of solid waste are generated daily in Karachi — Pakistan’s financial, cultural, and economic capital.

However, the City of Lights — whose streets used to be cleaned with water on a daily basis in the 1930s — is now rotting because of rubbish and due to the incompetence of the MQM-P (Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan), the PPP (Pakistan People’s Party), and even the common public.

Not much has changed in the metropolis in recent times, even during the tenure of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf).
