HÀ NỘI – Hà Nội Urban Environment One Member Co yesterday received 12 German-made street sweepers worth more than VND20 billion (US$878,000) to help clean up the streets for the New Year.

Nguyễn Thế Hùng, chairman of the city’s People’s Committee, said that the city has piloted to mechanise the cleaning up of streets in four districts of the inner city and obtained good results. Next year the city will expand the model to all districts.  

Nguyên Hữu Tiến, director of the Hà Nội Urban Environment One Member Co, said the company owns 28 Hako City master 1600 street sweepers.

Each sweeper could replace between six to eight workers. Moreover, the vehicles can collect dust and minimise emissions into the environment.

Apart from the street sweepers, the company plans to invest in 100 specialised vehicles to collect the increased rubbish during the New Year and Tet holidays. — VNS
