Ogun assures recycling companies of robust business environment
Ogun State Government has reiterated its pledge to provide an enabling environment for recycling companies in the state to thrive and reach their full potential.
Special Adviser to the governor on Environment and Chief Executive Officer of the state Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA), Mr. Ola Oresanya, gave the assurance when three metal recycling companies – Mathi Metal Recycling Limited, Merito Worldwide Impex Limited and Fenice Metal Industries Limited in Sagamu axis of the state – paid him a working visit.
Oresanya said the state, which has the highest number of recycling industries in Nigeria and could be called “Nigeria Recycling Capital,” would continue to support them through a circular economic programme which encourages waste minimisation, recycling and re-use for the benefit of their business, society and the environment.
He also informed them of the state government’s plan to expose their operational staff to internationally recognised training regimes so that their products would be of equal quality with their foreign counterparts, thereby enhancing their marketability at home and boost exportation.
The special adviser, therefore, urged them to be better organised and update their registration for proper profiling to benefit from the good intention of the state government and further directed them to adhere strictly to health and safety codes of their industry for the benefit of all.
Responding, the Human Resources Manager of Merito Worldwide Impex Limited, Alhaji Saliu Aminu, who spoke on behalf of the host companies, pledged their support to new initiatives, adding that recycling industries and the sub-sector are in for a new lease of life in the gateway state under the current administration.
