The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), has been commended for excellent performance in waste management.
The Head of Geocycle LAFARGE Africa Plc, Mr. Daniel Adedokun, gave the commendation during a facility tour by LAWMA officials’ facility to the company’s Ewekoro plant recently.
Adedokun noted that LAWMA has an organised way of managing wastes and its openness in executing various projects, had encouraged interested parties to support the organisation.
His words: “LAWMA is highly organised. We can see various aspects of their projects and it is easy to key-in, so that we can be part and parcel of it”.
LAWMA’s team leader, Mr. Taoheed Dosunmu, stated that the Authority was willing and ready to collaborate with any organisation to achieve a clean environment.
He said, “In managing waste, the issue of landfill is critical, and may become a thing of the past soon, so, the alternative is why LAWMA is collaborating with others to achieve its mandate as well as enhance service delivery”.
The Head of LAWMA Academy, Mrs. Elizabeth Ademola, stated that the academy was ready to educate and engage people across all ages on waste and related issues, which was why interns of the school came along for practical exposure and to understand the benefits inherent in waste management.
The LAWMA team was shown round the various stages of waste processing during the tour.
