Two garbage compactor trucks will be given to Thimphu dzongkhag, and one will be assigned to Trashigang dzongkhag. The trucks are expected to contribute to dealing with the ever-increasing amount of waste produced daily, especially in urban areas. The trucks will also improve the efficiency and effectiveness of waste management and collection system in the two dzongkhags.
