LAWMA begins enforcement on cart pushers operation in FESTAC
The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), yesterday, said it would conduct major enforcement operations at the FESTAC of Lagos over the next few weeks to stem cart-pushing activities, which have left the environment in a deplorable condition.
According to a statement by LAWMA, the activities of the outlawed cart-pushers had increased the tempo of indiscriminate disposal of wastes at unauthorised locations, such as drainage channels, road medians and uncompleted buildings.
LAWMA’s Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Hakeem Kayode, in the statement, said enforcement would be carried out in the area to restore sanity to the environment and forestall the negative consequences of indiscriminate dumping of refuse, especially during the rainy season.
The authority urged residents to shun patronage of cart-pushers, whose activities jeopardise the health and safety of people living in the state, stressing the need for people to patronise assigned PSP operators, and to pay for waste services promptly.
It further stated that the state government, through LAWMA, had empowered PSP operators, to render quality waste management services across the metropolis, with the goal of making Lagos cleaner and livable for all.
For waste management-related issues, residents are enjoined to call LAWMA toll-free numbers: 07080601020 and 617.
