Over 2,500 personnel and more than 200 vehicles and machinery were mobilized to handle the disposal of animal remains. For the first time, the CDA distributed free biodegradable bags to citizens and set up 110 collection points across the city.

Speaking to a private news channel, Randhawa mentioned that an emergency control room was set up to monitor sanitation issues. He explained that the director of sanitation had divided Islamabad into various zones to ensure timely disposal of waste.

Randhawa emphasized that all sanitary staff members were present during the Eid holidays, with their leaves canceled to ensure effective waste management. Special field teams were deployed to address key areas around the city and promptly remove garbage. The CDA successfully collected over 1,000 tons of animal remains from different parts of the city and disposed of them in scientifically dug trenches.
