AMMAN — Theeban Municipality has started producing its own garbage containers and light poles, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Thursday.

The cost of a container used to be JD350, while the new ones will be produced for JD75, as it will be made by the municipality technicians, said Theeban Mayor Adel Janadbeh.

He said that the municipality has bought raw materials for JD1,000 and produced 22 containers. He added that the cost of producing a light pole will be  JD1.25 instead of buying it for JD7.

Janadbeh said that the move aims at saving the municipality’s budget, of which 70 per cent goes for salaries.
