Underground garbage containers which were put into service by Fatih Municipality Environmental Protection and Control Directorate in 2006 in order to prevent the appearance and odor problems caused by domestic wastes in the district and to prevent the disruption of the traffic with garbage trucks in areas where traffic is dense have been renewed.

In addition to the underground garbage containers which have been put into service in various streets of Fatih district since 2006, 60 underground containers have been launched between Haliç Coast Line and Adnan Menderes Boulevard by Fatih Municipality Environmental Protection and Control Directorate in 2013-2014 period. The appearance and odor problems have been minimized by underground garbage containers because discarded domestic wastes fall about 3 meters below the ground surface. In addition, there was always traffic problems in the streets of Fatih district because the volume of the old type of surface garbage containers was small and thus garbage trucks continuously made ring in the traffic to prevent the overflow of these containers. Underground garbage containers have been put into service by thinking that garbage collecting vehicles would less hamper the traffic because these containers have a volume of approximately 5,000 liters in size, and Fatih residents have also expressed their satisfaction with the application.

The garbage containers which have been used by Fatih residents for 10 years and become old in time have been replaced with the new ones and put into the service of Fatih residents.
