The Lagos waste management authority on Monday affirmed its readiness to meet the waste management needs of residents during the festive season.

In a statement, the Managing Director of LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, stated that the authority works hard towards ensuring that the season is celebrated in a clean environment.

He disclosed that the agency has intensified the distribution of black thrash bags for household waste and purple bags for recyclables to residents in the state.

The MD added that PSP operators have been mandated to work round the clock in their assigned areas of operation, while the authority would provide backup trucks.

Gbadegesin further stated that the authority recently published the list of PSP operators in Lagos and their areas of coverage to enable residents reach out to them when there is a service gap, while adding that phone numbers of LAWMA management staff had also been published for the purpose of monitoring the situation of the environment during the yuletide.

He implored residents to desist from acts capable of making life miserable for the environment and its inhabitants.

While wishing residents a dirt-free Christmas and New Year celebration, he enjoined residents to call the toll-free 07080601020 for inquiries on waste management in their areas during and after the festive season.
