Over 50 LWMC Members Participate in Eid Cleanliness Workshop

LAHORE: Urban Unity experts conducted a two-day training on clean-up operations on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha in the provincial metropolis on June 24-25.

More than 50 operations team members of Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) including Area Officers, Supervisors, Managers, Deputy Managers and Deputy Managers attended the training sessions held at Urban Unit’s Khalid Sherdil Hall.

Urban Unit Solid Waste Management Specialists Asif Iqbal and Anum Shahid conducted the training. Specialists have designed training with activity-based workshops, group work plan sessions and participatory discussion-based learning to ensure participants get the most out of this exercise.

With Eid-ul-Azha approaching in less than two weeks, the importance of waste management operations by the LWMC is growing given the estimated three-day waste generation of Eid as well as monsoon rains hitting the city at the same time. .

Cleaning operations must be smooth and hassle-free in order to allow citizens to enjoy this religious holiday in a neat and clean environment.
