Under these regulations, the CDA will commence the collection of charges for solid waste management services from newly established housing societies. This move aims to streamline waste disposal practices and foster environmental sustainability within the capital.

As part of the regulatory framework, each housing society will be mandated to submit a detailed plan to the CDA outlining the establishment of solid waste disposal sites within their premises. These plans will undergo rigorous evaluation by key stakeholders within the CDA, including the Director of Housing Societies, Director of Regional Planning, and the Sanitation Department. Additionally, input from the Environment Department of the CDA will be solicited to ensure adherence to environmental standards and regulations.

Housing societies will be tasked with the setup and maintenance of waste disposal sites for all residential units within their jurisdiction. Furthermore, they will bear the ongoing expenses associated with waste management services, thereby contributing to the city’s sustainability efforts.

To enforce compliance, housing societies that fail to obtain necessary permits will be barred from utilizing CDA’s dumping sites for waste disposal. Instead, they will be mandated to manage solid waste within their premises until formal approval is granted by the CDA.

These regulations signify the CDA’s commitment to fostering responsible waste management practices and promoting a cleaner, greener environment in Islamabad’s residential communities.
