Waste collection arrangements to remain in place until August

Waste Management Company WAMCO has stated that waste collection services will continue according to the current practice until August.

WAMCO brought changes to its waste collection policies when Male' city was placed on lockdown after the first case of local transmission of COVID-19 was identified in the Maldives. WAMCO collected garbage from ground floor door steps at specific times instead of entering homes to collect the garbage.

A statement issued by WAMCO on Sunday said the same procedure will be followed until August 1. Garbage will only be collected between 12 pm and 2 pm until then. Garbage will be collected from homes under HPA monitoring status according to instructions given by HPA, said WAMCO.
