Uploaded by Adekoya on August 7, 2019
The Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, has called on residents to properly dispose of their domestic wastes during and after the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
In a statement, the Assistant Director, Public Affairs of LAWMA, Mrs. Folashade Kadiri, said that adequate measures had been put in place to ensure that the celebration is observed in a filth-free environment, as waste evacuators have been mandated to work round the clock to clean up the city.
She reiterated LAWMA’s resolve to stamp out all forms of improper waste disposal resulting in environmental degradation and urged residents to desist from dumping wastes on the road medians and to patronise only their assigned PSP operators.
According to Mrs. Kadiri, toll-free lines have been made available to the public for a swift response to complaints as well as back-up operations in areas witnessing service gaps.
The toll free numbers are: 07080601020 or 617.
She said LAWMA would be distributing free trash bags to residents for easy storage of extra waste that would be generated during the period.
