WSSP introduces rickshaw garbage lifters in Peshawar

In a bid to clean the roads and streets of Peshawar, Water and Sanitation Services Peshawar has introduced rickshaw garbage lifters, reports a local media outlet.

According to the details, initially, the authority has introduced 16 rickshaw garbage lifters to carry out the operations throughout the city. While speaking with the media, spokesperson of WSSP Hassan Ali said that the streets of the inner part of the city are narrow and big trucks cannot go there to collect the garbage and people were reporting the issue of garbage not being taken away, so they have introduced these rickshaws to collect the garbage. These specially made garbage lifters can easily run through the narrow streets, he added.

For the past many months, the local government is making efforts to clean the city and give relief to the people of Peshawar and to attract tourists.

  2. OH YES. watfr, its a new compound. - only visible to human eye after consumption of naswaar.

    why choose a stupid ricksha for this job, why not mod a pickup truck, I thought tabdeeli was to go ahead not backwards.

    Yea! A Truck would've been FABULOUS for Small & Congested Roads, Quite easy to be repaired by ordinary mechanics cause Apparently Skilled Ones Chickened out & Flew to the Country of Goras.

    & You know What, they should Mod a Pick-up by using Harry Potter's "Squeeze Bus Mode" just to cope with NARROW Entrances.

    Absolutely Marvellous thinking, Thanks for the Tip Mate.

  4. HAHA @skt_Z4 SHOTSSS FIREEDDDDD....hahaha @Xulfiqar

    to be honest mate using a rickshaw for this job is a genius idea because of two things.
    low fuel consumption and ease of use to enter narrow streets.

  5. it has useless load carrying capability, modifying a suzuki ravi would have been a much better use of time.

    garbage is a very heavy cargo as its wet, using these is a guaranteed way to have headaches, the driveline, tires, wheels etc are not mean to support a ton of weight. If these are being used to and back to make smaller pickup trips. Then all fuel savings are useless. (same idea of economy scales when using a train to move cargo vs a truck)

    lol. - Pakhawarr. genius ideas - this looks like someone snatched quite a grant in lieu of making these, and only about 10% of that grant was actually used - it happens all the time as their is no audit system.
