Garbage Tax to be imposed in Karachi

KARACHI: After the recent outsourcing of garbage collection by the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board (SSWMB), a Chinese company has been given the contract to collect garbage from households and dump it at Garbage Transfer Stations, said the board’s managing director Dr AD Sajnani.

 

From there, the waste management board is responsible for lifting the garbage to the landfill sites, he added.

 

People will not be charged for this facility in the first year (2017) but the government will consider imposing an additional tax from next year, he said.
