LAWMA

Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has expressed readiness to meet the waste management needs of residents, during and after the solemn Easter festivities, and to consolidate on its year round vision of establishing a cleaner and healthier Lagos.

 

The Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, who said this in a statement noted that the Authority would leave no stone unturned, towards ensuring that the season was celebrated in clean environment, given the expected 100 percent increase in waste output during the period.

 

He revealed that the agency had intensified its advocacy campaigns, to sensitize residents on the importance of ensuring environmental sustainability around their neighbourhoods, adding that PSP operators had been mandated to work optimally in their assigned areas, with the authority providing backup operations to cover service gaps.

 

Odumboni said, “All district heads across the state have been mandated to double their efforts and support the PSP operation to ensure no gap is felt. We have also taken definite steps to facilitate increased turnaround time by waste evacuation trucks, making sure there are no delay at landfills”.

The LAWMA boss implored residents to desist from all acts capable of degrading the environment, while appealing to motorists to drive with caution, to safeguard lives of street sweepers and other service providers, discharging their duties during the period.

 

He further urged the populace to bag their waste, patronise assigned PSP operators and pay their waste management bills promptly, assuring that the Authority had put in place adequate measures to ensure the celebration was observed in an environment-friendly atmosphere.

 

While wishing all Lagosians a dirt-free Easter celebration, he enjoined residents to call LAWMA’s toll-free numbers 07080601020 and 617, for inquiries on waste management issues in their areas, during and after the festive season.
