The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) is expected to acquire 12 garbage trucks in the new fiscal year.

A sum of $300 million has been set aside in the 2018-19 Estimates of Expenditure to undertake the purchase.

The Estimates were recently tabled in the House of Representatives by Minister of Finance, Audley Shaw.

The new vehicles will strengthen the NSWMA’s existing fleet to improve garbage collection.
