Zoomlion Ghana Limited has rolled out the second phase of the emergency clean-up exercise to rid most communities in Accra of filth.
This is a continuation of the first phase of the exercise which was carried out in partnership with the Accra Metropolitan Assembly at the Ayawaso West and Okaikoi sub-metros.Other sub-metros who benefited from the exercise include AshieduKeteke, Ablekuma South, Ayawaso West, Ablekuma North, Ayawaso Central, Okaikoi South, OsuKlottey and Ablekuma central.
In addressing participants of the clean-up, the Communications Officer of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mr. Adams Mohammed Mahama, stated that we always sayenvironment sanitation is a sheared responsibility but we don’t act it. Most often, private waste management companies and the assemblies are the institutions that play active role in waste management. But in order to achieve the desired result the third and most important party, that is, the
general public should change their attitude and always support the other institution to manage waste.
He also stated that,when waste is managed will in our various communities’ diseases such as malaria and cholera will be tremendously minimized if not eradicated. This will intern save the country and various families lots of money that would have been used for treatment of malaria or cholera.
Mr. Daniel Martey, Accra Zone Head of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, explained that specific locations within the various sub-metros will be visited in the week of the exercise and continue to other areas within these sub-metros in the subsequent week.
He again added that Zoomlion as a waste management company will continue to do its best by providing the necessary resource and logistics for waste management.
