At a brief inauguration event at the Olusosun Landfill, Ojota, the managing director/CEO of LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, described the development as a morale booster, representing a giant leap in the waste collection effort of the agency.

He noted that the 35 new entrants have automatically increased the number of trucks available for waste collection, leading to a good increase in the number of daily truck trips to the various landfills in the state.

He said: “We are adding 35 new PSP operators who will join the existing ones in our waste evacuation effort. With that addition, we can make something around 800 trips to the landfills daily. This is a very good development.

Also speaking, chairman of the PSP operators, Mr. David Oriyomi, commended LAWMA for its relentless effort at ensuring environmental cleanliness in the state, promising that the PSP operators would not rest on their oars.

Other highlights of the event included the presentation of cheques to three best PSP operators in the state, while the representatives of Access Bank gave a talk to the PSP operators on liquidity and loan to finance their business.
