 The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has called
on residents to properly dispose of their domestic wastes during and after the
forth-coming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

The Assistant Director, Public Affairs of LAWMA, Mrs.
Folashade Kadiri, in a statement, disclosed that adequate measures had been put
in place to ensure that the celebration was observed in a filth-free
environment, as waste evacuators have been mandated to work round the clock to
clean up the city.
The statement noted LAWMA’s resolve to stamp out all
forms of improper waste disposal in the metropolis, which has resulted in
environmental degradation, calling on residents to patronize only their
assigned PSP operators.
According to Mrs. Kadiri, toll-free lines had been made
available to the public, for swift response to complaints, as well as back-up
operations in areas witnessing service gaps.
While speaking on its plan for effective and improved
services within its three (3) districts, during the festive period, she said
LAWMA would be distributing free trash bags to residents for easy storage of
extra waste that would be generated during the period.
Accordingly, the LAWMA spokesperson advised residents
to desist from dumping waste indiscriminately on road medians and verges, but
to patronize accredited PSP operators in their areas.
She also assured that extra trucks had been deployed to
ensure adequate back-up for the PSP operators, urging residents to call the
Authority’s toll free lines 07080601020 or 617, to request for prompt
While wishing residents happy celebrations, she
appealed to Lagosians to shun acts capable of negatively impacting on the
environment, stressing that the task of achieving the desired cleaner and healthier
environment was a collective responsibility.
