Japan to provide waste collection trucks for Jaffna

Japan has granted Rs.15 million to provide waste collection trucks for Jaffna through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP).

The grant contract was signed on March 19, at the Ambassador's Residence in Colombo, between Japanese Ambassador Akira Sugiyama and Jaffna Mayor E. Arnold.

Through the project the Jaffna Municipal Council will receive four waste collection compactor trucks from Japan to improve the hygienic environment.

The Society for Promotion of Japanese Diplomacy (SPJD) will coordinate donation of reconditioned waste collection trucks from Japan to Sri Lanka.Mayor E. Arnold said this is a timely and helpful gift for the people of Jaffna to keep the city clean and tidy.

The addition of these four trucks to our fleet will improve garbage disposal in the Jaffna Municipal area.

I assure the Government of Japan that we will utilize these vehicles to get the maximum benefit and anticipate receiving more assistance from Japan in the future,” the mayor said.
