Update on Garbage Collection Mini tractor
Date : 10 Mar 2023
Recently, a mini tractor with a hydraulic trolley, has been assigned for the garbage collection work in Mahrail and nearby villages.
The electric vehicle purchased (garbage van) earlier is undergoing frequent repairs and as a result of that we had to buy a robust vehicle that can collect garbage all year around from all corners of the village.
The mini tractor is well suitable for that, we just had to add a hydraulic trolley and it’s working great.
The older garbage van is still functional and used as a secondary garbage van and also for carrying plants, compost etc for tree plantation works.
