Rubbish collection services in the remote mountain city of Naryn, Kyrgyzstan, have been transformed beyond all recognition.
Over the past four years, as a result of Integrity Action’s UKAid-funded Pro Poor
Integrity (PPI) programme, the council’s rubbish collection enterprise has completely overhauled its procedures, with the announcement that 126 collection points will be visited on the same two days each week.
All residents can access this information through large maps that are displayed in the supplier’s offices.
Additionally, more than 250 rubbish containers have been installed around the city, and twice as many trucks are now deployed.
