In response to illegal dumping across the city, the Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) enforcement wing has launched a campaign against illegal waste dumping.
In response to Rafia Haider’s instructions, the drive was initiated. To prevent illegal garbage dumping on the road, the company should adhere to a zero-tolerance policy. In order to prevent illegal dumping around drains, Rafia Haider gave standing instructions. There is a round-the-clock presence of enforcement teams in the field, she said.
A total of 3,854 inspections have been conducted by enforcement teams in the last 15 days, during which 536 challans have been issued for littering and illegal dumping on roads, and a fine of Rs1.15 million has been imposed for violating the Local Government Act. Minor violations were also issued 1,500 warning notices during the campaign.
To keep the drainage flowing during monsoon rains, Rafia Haider stressed the importance of avoiding illegal dumping and dumping garbage on the road. The illegal dumpers are being dealt with immediately.
In case of any complaints, citizens can always contact the LWMC helpline 1139 or use social media to file complaints instead of violating the Local Government Act.
