Four refuse trucks have been donated to the Kinondoni district in Dar es Salaam by an environmental agency. The vehicles are worth $300,000 and were a gift from the Ecology Protection Company (ECO).
The trucks have the capacity to haul 27 tonnes of garbage and are adapted to differentiate garbage types.
Kinondoni is the northernmost of three districts in Dar es Salaam and the most upmarket. The other two are Temeke to the far south-east, and Ilala in downtown Dar es Salaam.
