LMC’s garbage collection drive

LALITPUR: In a bid to improve garbage collection, regularise the habit of garbage dumping and keep the streets clean in Lalitpur, the Lalitpur sub-Metropolitan City (LMC) is preparing to work with private organisations in garbage collection, initially in four wards of the LMC soon.
The planned Public Private Partnership (PPP) with local non-government organisations working in garbage collection will be started from commercial areas such as Kupondole, Sanepa. Pradeep Amatya, environment engineer at Environment and Sanitation Section of LMC said: “The partnership will make the organisations that have already been collecting from the households and cleaning up the streets accountable to the LMC. This step has been taken under the Local Self-Governance Act 1998, which gives the local authorities right to collect revenues and tax in partnership with private organisations.”
He added that the LMC has made an agreement with the Women Environment Preservation Committee and Nepal Pollution Control and Environment Management Center who are already collecting garbage from households of ward no.1 and 2. The LMC has been allocated
Rs 20.5 million in the current fiscal year for garbage management.
