Sisi directs speeding up measures of handling garbage

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Sunday 11/11/2018 directed speeding up the completion of a comprehensive plan aimed at handling garbage nationwide and improving the environmental, health and living conditions of citizens.

This came during Sisi's meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, Local Development Minister Mahmoud Shaarawi and Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad, presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said in a statement.

The plan should include an accurate survey of all the equipment and capabilities nationwide to efficiently collect the garbage, in addition to determining potential funding sources, control measures, and performance assessment regulations, Radi added.

In parallel, Sisi ordered to launch a dialogue which involves all segments of the society, especially youth, on the national plan to develop the garbage collection system.

The move targets to raise public awareness about the best garbage management methods in Egypt. 

The president discussed ways to handle the random garbage dumps and increase the participation of the private sector.
