Oyo State Govt Pledges To Improve Waste Management

Oyo State Government has said that it will ensure the success of the new waste management system in the state.

It stressed further that its waste management consultant, Mottanai Recycling, would be embarking on an emergency cleanup campaign exercise, which will also mandate the appointed waste collectors to embark on household door-to-door collection of wastes.

The state’s Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Abiodun Oni, disclosed this, yesterday, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Oni said that government’s mandate was to ensure that its citizens stay in a clean and safe environment. He warned residents against wrong attitude to waste disposal, adding that the menace would be conquered in no distant time.

Besides, he urged residents to appreciate and adopt the state government’s programme on waste management, which in the long run would be beneficial to all.

He said: “Over 197 waste collectors have applied for the renewal contract of PSPs. Re-applying does not necessarily mean automatic re-engagement, as the criteria for re-engagement must be met to achieve the cleanliness and efficiency deserving of our citizens.

“Planting of trees and cleanliness of the environment are of great concern.

“To this end, there shall be no indiscriminate dumping of wastes on road medians and other open spaces.”

“Traders and business owners are expected to pay promptly their apportioned waste bills and be responsible for the wastes they generate, which is part of their civic responsibilities.”
