The Islamabad chief commissioner wants residents to stop dumping their trash. To stop this he has granted magisterial powers to assistant commissioners.

The Islamabad deputy commissioner says that any person who is found throwing rubbish outside their house or car or on the streets will be fined.

The city administration is gearing up for more cleanliness drives throughout the city and residents have been asked to report any person who dumps rubbish.

To handle this, the chief commissioner granted all assistant commissioners in the city and the secretary of the transport authority magisterial powers on February 26.

    Thanks God, civil authority show concern on a very sensitive issue , May Allah give them the sense to implement it in letter and sprit.
    What will be the mechanism to report, it should be brought in to the notice of the public.

    When I first arrived in Islamabad 5 years ago, I wanted to throw out the rubbish but couldn’t find any garbage bins along the street. I had to take it home and dumped it in a big bin near my home! Now 5 years on, I still can’t throw out rubbish because there’s still hardly any bins around in public places!
    Where do you suggest we chuck out the garbage if there’s no bins provided?
    I notice that most Pakistanis lack disciplines and consideration regarding littering garbage. Children and adults are the same, litter rubbish along the streets, they must be educated at home and school since childhood! Adopt the disciplinary conscience of the Japanese, then your country will have clean and lovely environments!

    G. 13 sector has no proper waste bins. All garbage is dumped outside on road due to broken dustbins

    There are so many laws but no implementation. Hence it will be unchanged

    Although in G-13 the trash collectors collect trash from houses, but due to lake of proper bins they themselves chuck it on open grounds.
    Another issue is related to the deprived children of our society, who usually tear open the garbage bags for the search of recyclable items.

    Very Good decision. What is the fine ? What arrangement has been made by the authorities for disposal of trash by residents? CDA may consider deputing personnel to collect trash from each house every morning or place bins for the purpose, after every 2/3 houses. Scavengers opening trash bags and littering in search for discarded items to sell, need to be checked ASAP.
