LUSAKA CITY COUNCIL The Lusaka City Council is a local authority established under the provisions of the Local Government Act 281 of the Laws of Zambia. LCC has different functions according to the provisions of the laws. One of functions of the LCC is to provide solid waste management services to the residents of Lusaka.
