Firm expands Lagos waste disposal operation with 200 new trucks
As part of efforts to expand its waste disposal in Lagos, environmental waste management Company, Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, will deploy 200 more trucks.
The firm also plans to work with 100 Waste Collection Officers (WCOs), otherwise known as PSP operators to boost the effort and for wider reach.
Chief Operating Officer (COO), Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, Mr. Thomas Forgacs, who disclosed this at an interaction with the media, said the effort was aimed at addressing the current waste situation in the state.
He stressed that the fleet, which will add to the 131 trucks currently in used will ensure remarkable improvement in the system before Easter.
According to him, the company has already distributed four million plastic refuse waste bags and targeting to distribute 10 million more plastic refuse bags to ensure a seamless process.
Other efforts being implored by the organisation to ensure a cleaner Lagos, he said, include the provision of 15,000 refuse bins, with 20,000 galvanised bins, expected to be distributed by August, 2018.
He assured Lagosians of remarkable improvement on refuse collection and disposal in the next couple of days.
Also the head of Corporate Communications and Corporate Social responsibility (CSR), Motunrayo Elias said the firm will soon return to its door to door domestic refuse collection plan following the resolution reached with the PSP operators.
She assured that all residential areas and streets across the 57 local council areas in Lagos would soon benefit from the plan.
According to her, the initial, plan, which will be rolled out was affected by the refuse crisis caused when PSP operators withdrew their trucks form the road leading to the firm being drafted to clear the black spots.
Elias called for understating of Lagosians, stressing that better days are ahead with the new bins and collaboration with the WCOs, which is expected to quicken the response time, assuring that the engineering landfill at Epe will be completed in 18 months time.
On his part, Head of Planning, Visionscape Sanitation, Kiran Redd Seblan, said the firm has a strategy of first clearing the black spots and gradually move into thee residential areas.
He assured that with the clearing of over 2000 black spots, the firm would launch out to the next step to ensure improved and better services to Lagosians especially with the recent synergy with the Waste Collection Officers.
