In late October, USAID delivered fifty new community garbage containers to the Municipality of Tirin Kot, the capital of Uruzgan Province.
These metal containers are colored in striking orange – a color that distinguishes municipal property and service improvement projects supported by USAID in six capitals of southern Afghanistan: Kandahar City in Kandahar Province, Lashkar Gah in Hilmand Province, Tirin Kot in Uruzgan Province, Zaranj in Nimroz Province, Nili in Daykundi Province, and Qalat in Zabul Province.
The containers, as well as new garbage removal vehicles, are provided in support of the rollout of the Solid Waste Management program, already in place in Kandahar City and about to start implementation in other capital municipalities.
USAID is assisting all targeted municipalities to deliver more efficient, dependable, better-managed, and sustainable solid waste management services by investing in capital infrastructure and optimizing municipal asset use to provide this essential services to their citizens.
