The Islamabad Metropolitan Corporation (IMC) has decided to charge its citizens a ‘cleaning tax’ to lift trash bags from outside their homes.
Islamabad Mayor, Sheikh Ansar Aziz, has approved the tax today, which will be applicable across the city.
So from now on, every household in Islamabad will be charged a fixed monthly fee for the collection of garbage.
The residents of government quarters and bungalows will pay between Rs. 300 and Rs. 1000 while the fee for private-owned houses will range from Rs. 400 to Rs. 4000, depending on the size of the house.
