Around 10,000 tons of waste is expected to be produced in the corporation areas on the day of Eid-ul-Azha

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) authorities have designated 256 places for Qurbani, [the slaughtering of sacrificial animals] in the Eid-ul-Azha, urging the citizens to slaughter sacrificial animals in those designated spots.

“We have designated 256 places for sacrificing animals. The citizens should slaughter animals in those designated spots,” DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam told an online meeting with DNCC officials-employees on waste management of sacrificial animals.

He asked all concerned to ensure proper management of cattle markets and waste management of sacrificial animals.

The mayor said like previous years, all wastes of sacrificial animals would be removed within 24 hours as around 10,000 tons of waste is expected to be produced in the corporation areas on the day of Eid-ul-Azha, one of the biggest religious festivals of the Muslim community.

Atiqul said monitoring measures have been strengthened as health guidelines are strictly followed at cattle markets in the wake of the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak as a monitoring committee comprising 10 ward councillors have already been formed to this end.

On behalf of the mayor, letters have been sent to the imams of each mosque in DNCC areas to deliver sermons during Jummah Khutba raising awareness about sacrificing animals in the designated spots, and not dumping animal wastes here and there.

Besides, leaflets distribution, campaigning on social media, and playing recordings of awareness raising messages through loudspeakers are also being carried out calling upon the people to refrain from sacrifice animals here and there, and rather do that in designated places maintaining hygiene and keeping wastes in specified bags to cooperate the authorities in proper waste management.
