The Lusaka City Council (LCC) has Procured Eight Tipper Trucks at a cost of 5.6 Million Kwacha to Enhance Garbage Collection Activities in the City.
City Mayor, Wilson Kalumba said there was still more Equipment that the Council needed to Procure and believed the Local Authority was on Course with the Procurement Exercise.
The Mayor said at the Moment the Council had on Average Three Trucks Running for Garbage Collection and that most of the Equipment was Obsolete, hence the Purchasing of the Eight Trucks would go a long way in Enhancing Solid Waste Management in the City.
Mr. Kalumba said the Procurement of the Eight Trucks would make a Difference in the Garbage Collection Exercise and the General Cleaning of the City.
He added that the Momentum would only be Maintained with the Right Equipment and Mindset by the Residents of Lusaka who would at some point be Compelled to Pay Towards the Management of Solid Waste.
