Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives (LGRD) Minister Md Tajul Islam said that modern technology will be used soon for sewerage wastes management like the developed countries.

He made the remarks while addressing an online workshop for mayors and engineers of the municipality on Sunday.

The Minister said advanced technology is being used in waste management in different countries of the world. The use of advanced technology is also being reviewed in Bangladesh.

Necessary equipment will be brought in considering all the advantages and disadvantages of achieving sustainable development goals and building a clean and tidy country, he added.

He further said that all types of wastes including sewage and solid wastes must be managed in such a way so that the environment is not polluted and those can’t do any harm to human health.

The government will provide all the necessary logistical support to build a clean, environmentally friendly Bangladesh.

The minister listened to the mayors about the problems in the country’s municipalities and promised to solve them. At the same time, he urged the municipalities to increase their own revenue.
