The Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, in a press
statement, noted that waste management was an essential service designed to enhance the well-being of the people and the environment.

He assured residents that LAWMA was prepared to handle the expected
increase in waste generation during the festive season, urging them to
properly bag their waste and put them in covered bins, to avoid loose waste on the road median and setbacks.

The LAWMA helmsman stated that PSP operators had been directed to discharge their duties effectively with the agency offering backup services to fill in
any gaps.

“We understand that there will be an increase in waste generation during
the festive season, but we want to assure Lagosians that LAWMA is
prepared to handle it. We have intensified our waste management efforts and are providing backup trucks for our PSP operators to ensure that
waste is promptly collected and disposed of”, he said.

Odumboni also implored residents to refrain from activities that could
damage the environment and endanger the lives of people, but to support
efforts of LAWMA to make the metropolis livable for all.

He said, “We want to appeal to residents to desist from acts capable of making
life miserable for the environment and its inhabitants. We want to ensure that everyone enjoys a clean and healthy environment during and after the Eid-il-Fitr celebrations”.

Odumboni wished all residents a joyful and clean Eid-el-Fitr celebration while encouraging them to call LAWMA’s toll-free lines: 07080601020 and 617, for inquiries on waste management in their areas during and after the festive season.
