PESHAWAR: The Clean and Neat Peshawar campaign would be formally kicked off on December 12.

This was decided at a meeting presided over by Peshawar deputy commissioner Shafiullah Khan here on Tuesday.

The meeting was also attended by additional deputy commissioner Dr Ehtashamul Haq, officials of the district administration, works and sanitation services, Peshawar Development Authority, local government and rural development department.

It was decided that awareness walks would be held in the bazaars to sensitise the people to the lethal effects of pollution caused by plastic bags and the open dumping of garbage. During the campaign, mud and waste would be removed from roadsides.

The deputy commissioner urged the people to dispose of waste of their houses at the designated places rather than throwing it in the streets and on the roads.
