The Managing Director of Sindh Solid Waste Management Board Asif Ikram has stated that on Karachi's roads and streets, there are millions of tons of waste collected over many years now. During a cleanliness drive for ten days, the SSWMB collected about 150,000 tons
The figures show that the SSWMB has still to eliminate a waste inventory of about 1,450,000 tons, with waste from between 14,000 to 16,000 tons every day. At a session of the Urban Resource Center on Wednesday, the SSWMB Managing Director was speaking. Ikram reported that SSWMB manages 35 percent of the garbage collected in Karachi and 17 other entities have separate authorities in the metropolitan area including cantonment, civil aviation, Karachi Port Trust and Pakistan Railways.
The new managing director of SSWMB told Samaa Digital that the board is in a pilot process in Karachi for the first time, and will extend its operations over time in other districts of Sindh.
He stayed tight-lipped over the board's past performance, stating it was only important to quickly remove the waste backlog of millions of tons. "During the Sindh government's cleanliness drive, thousands of tons of garbage and debris were found from the storm water drains," Ikram said, which stresses the creation of active litter legislation.
Ikram said he encountered a guy who picked hair from the garbage, sharing a recent experience at the Jam Chakro waste dump site.
"I asked the boy why and he answered that after washing and handling him appropriately, he sells the hair on the street," Ikram said. He added. "Then this hair is used for wig creation. India has a strong recycled hair industry to export after proper treatment, "he added. Upon splitting the products, they can use waste dramatically, but the government has no strategy for this. Waste transit stations should be set up far from residential areas because the rigid scent of waste is an annoyance for residents and yields widespread diseases.
