The Amuwo Odofin Local Government has begun the evacuation of heaps of refuse from some illegal dumpsites in the locality.
In recent times there have been heaps of refuse all around the community as a result of the stoppage of PSP operators from evacuating domestic refuse.
The new move by the present administration is part of the sanitation intervention programme to address environmental challenges.
In a telephone conversation, the Executive Chairman, Engr. Valentine Buraimoh noted that ” my administration’s zero tolerance for a safe, green and clean environment is unwavering. The exercise would be a continuous one.
As we speak, refuse dumped indiscriminately in places such as 11 road, Festac Town, Lagos; Gani Adams road, Abule Ado; agboju- Mile 2 Expressway, have been promptly carted away in order to restore cleanliness and purity within the environment in the local government.”
He encouraged residents and visitors alike to cooperate with the government by desisting from indiscriminate dumping of refuse in unauthorised places.
