Lagos State Government, yesterday, asked all residents not to abandon gains already made in cleaning the environment. 
  
Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, in a statement, called for utmost cleanliness of the environment and proper waste disposal during the holidays. 

    
He noted that as expected, a lot of waste would be generated during the Christmas and New Year celebrations, calling for proper disposal of animal waste as well as sorting and bagging of such refuse while placing them at designated points for assigned PSP operators to pick up.
  
Bello said: “I want to appeal to all residents to report cases of any black spots/illegal dumpsites promptly and this can be done through the CITI MONITOR APP, which is available on Google Play Store and Apple store to report any environmental infraction,” he said.
 
He explained that the administration of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu is at the forefront of the campaign for a healthy people, a cleaner and flood-free environment, urging residents to reciprocate the gesture 
  
He stated that residents should avoid the storage of petrol and other inflammable materials at homes, offices, shops and markets as their storage could aid fire outbreaks, particularly when virtually all objects in the environment are dry and combustible during this period.
