4000 staff members to be deployed for cleaning the city

Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) authorities have vowed to remove the waste of sacrificial animal within 24 hours from the day of Eid-ul-Azha.

Shafiqul Mannan Siddique, CCC's chief conservancy officer, told Dhaka Tribune that they have taken an all-out preparation to remove the waste of sacrificial animals within 5pm on Eid day.

"We have divided 41 wards of the city into four zones. Around 4000 staff members in charge of cleaning, along with 300 vehicles, will remain deployed for removing the waste," said the chief conservancy officer.

Morshedul Alam Chowdhury, CCC's deputy chief conservancy officer said that CCC Mayor AJM Nasir held a preparatory meeting on August 8, and set forth a detailed action plan for removing animal waste.

"The mayor asked the cleaning staff of the corporation to remove the waste within the fastest time possible. We have already distributed an adequate quantity of bleaching powder among all the wards," he said.

According to the CCC's Conservancy Department, the port city, inhabited by six million people, produces around 2500 tons of waste every day. During Eid ul Azha, 5000-6000 tons of waste is produced.     

CCC fixes 314 spots for slaughtering sacrificial animals

To facilitate fast and efficient disposal of blood and waste, the corporation authorities have fixed 314 spots in 41 wards of the city for slaughtering sacrificial animals, and urged the city dwellers to use the designated places.

The corporation authorities will also put up tarpaulin canopies in the designated slaughtering spots for the convenience of the city residents.

Morshedul said that they have already distributed leaflets among the city dwellers, pasted posters and hung many banners at different spots of the city requesting to slaughter sacrificial animals at the designated spots.

"Our cleaning staff will be able to remove the waste of animals within the shortest possible time if city residents indeed sacrifice their animals in the designated places," said he.  

The corporation has also opened a control room to ensure faster disposal of waste materials.
