RAWALPINDI  – Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) has decided to purchase 300 kanal of land to dump the garbage. The decision has been taken in the background of the resistance put up by the residents of Bhata Chowk against dumping of waste and garbage in Teaching Ground. Residents of the area had stopped the trucks from throwing garbage. The concerned authorities tried to convince the locals but the talks met failure.

The administration has decided to purchase land 25 kilometer away from the Cantt and all the preparations have been made in this regard. It may be recalled the residents of the surrounding areas of teaching ground had strongly protested against dumping of the garbage by cantonment boad and CDA in the ground earlier.
