Anambra to establish Sanitation Marshalls for indiscriminate dumping of refuse

www.odogwublog.com reports that the General Manager, Anambra State Waste Management Authority, ASWAMA, Mr. Amaechi Akorah, has urged residents of Anambra State to desist from dumping refuse indiscriminately on roads and drainage channels.

Akorah who gave the charge while speaking with newsmen in Awka, said they would soon establish sanitation marshals to check the menace.

According to him, the marshals will work with the agency's Sanitation Compliance and Monitoring teams in the areas to ensure that cleanliness will be maintained.

He said that they had planned for ASWAMA’s ‘Clean-Closer’ initiative and disclosed that they would deploy light truck fitted with megaphones to sensitize Ndi Anambra on dangers of dumping refuse on roads.

The ASWAMA boss said the agency would work in partnership with Eke Awka traders to stop dumping of refuse in the wrong places and ensure that cleanliness would be maintained in the area.

Mr. Akorah also said that dumping refuse on the road would not only make the environment dirty but would also block the drainage channels which the government constructed to stem flood disasters.

He enjoined Ndi Anambra to bag their refuse and dispose in ASWAMA waste bins for onward evacuation by the agency's officials in order to maintain clean and healthy environment.
