Lagos residents have been reminded of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s Executive Order on zero tolerance to environmental infractions.
Managing Director , Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, stressed that violators would be appropriately sanctioned under relevant environmental laws of the state, which forbade indiscriminate refuse disposal by residents.
He stressed the need for residents to support efforts of the state government in tackling the problem of flooding and other environmental hazards in the metropolis, by ensuring proper disposal of refuse.
Dr. Gbadegesin said LAWMA had intensified the distribution of waste disposal bags under its Blue Box Initiative, for residents to sort their waste and dispose appropriately, through PSPs operating in their areas.
He advised residents to promptly contact the Authority using the toll-free line 07080601020, for complaints and relevant information.
