HCM CITY — Black boxes will be installed on all garbage trucks in HCM City next month so the city can supervise trash management.
The HCM City Urban Environment Ltd Company, Districts’ public services Ltd Company and Agriculture-Industry Transport Co-operative will pay for the installment.
The city will also open bidding to select providers for services like street solid waste collecting or carrying waste from residential areas to waste treatment plants, said vice chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Lê Văn Khoa.
More than 7,000 tonnes of waste are discharged daily in the city. However, the waste collecting system has failed to keep pace with the increased volume of waste. — VNS
