Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Minister Tazul Islam on Wednesday said that the government is going to produce power from waste very soon. 

He said, “The government is going to produce power through proper management of waste under its ‘Waste to Energy’ project.”

The minister came up with the remark at a thanksgiving ceremony arranged to express gratitude to waste management workers of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).

The minister thanked DNCC mayor Atiqul Islam and cleaners as they removed the waste produced from sacrificial animals during Eid-ul-Adha within shortest time.

Speaking at the occasion mayor Atiqul Islam also thanked cleaners of DNCC.

The mayor said DNCC is working for cleaners’ welfare.

“We are constructing a residential building for cleaners at Gabtoli where 484 families can be accommodated. The construction will end by 2021,” he added.
