The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has reiterated its commitment to a cleaner and sustainable environment under any circumstances

It stressed that highway cleaners and PSP operators have been equipped to continue rendering holistic waste management services to the generality of residents and visitors in the state.

The statement reads further, “While assuring Lagosians and all tenements of our continued service, we want to crave your indulgence, patience and understanding, that, as soon as the situation is better and once unfettered access can be gained, our operations will resume in earnest and full dispensation of waste management will be assured,” the statement read.
“The Authority implored the populace to shun all forms of indiscriminate dumping of waste on the roads, canals and other unauthorized locations, which poses a lot of hazards to the environment and people who live in it.
