Modern waste bins were set up in the capital’s Hatirjheel, with separate compartments for recyclable and non-recyclable waste. However, the bin itself is turning into waste now, as it lies broken and useless beside the lake. PHOTO: SK ENAMUL HAQ

north city corporation

Former Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Annisul Huq’s reclaiming of the capital’s Tejgaon-Satrasta road from blatant encroachment by illegally parked trucks and vans became such a part of his legacy that after his demise, the road was named after him. However, heavy vehicles have since returned to take up the road again and again, with the authorities seemingly having no long-term answer to the nuisance. The photo was taken last week.

Though a necessity of the time, the non-decomposing nature of fabric-based surgical masks could lead to incredible harm for the environment. As people indiscriminately dispose of their masks on the street, health risks also compound. This photo was taken yesterday from the capital’s Mirpur. PHOTO: Rashed Shumon
