Mr Ibrahim Odumboni, the Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, has challenged Lagos Island homeowners to obtain waste bins for proper waste storage and simple evacuation.

He issued the challenge at a stakeholder meeting hosted by LAWMA at Lagos Island West Local Government, Iso, Onigari, where he stated that the true source of waste mess on theIsland was a lack of waste bins in individual residences

Odumboni said, if residents had waste bins in every home, properly containerizing their waste, it would prevent litter which is a common sight on Lagos Island and enable easy evacuation.

The LAWMA helmsman said, “The problem with waste management on the island here is the non-availability of waste bins in households. If you have waste bins, you can properly containerize your waste and there will be no litter everywhere. It will make evacuation easy and everywhere will be clean. Lagos Island cannot be left this way, we have to make a change”.

He said it was not mandatory to purchase LAWMA bins, but just ensure you have any bin to properly package their waste.

Responding, the council chairman, Hon. Tijani Adetoyese Olusi, represented by his vice, Hon. Mohammed Eshinloken, hinted at the recruitment of youths as drainage guards to clear the drainage channels around the Island, adding that it was a way of empowering the youths and keeping the environment clean.

“We have recruited youths here as drainage guards to clear our gutters. This will help to frequently desilt the drainage channels and improve our environment. We are also appealing to the government to help find a lasting solution to environmental pollution,” he concluded.

LAWMA’s Executive Director of finance, Mr Kunle Adebiyi, and the Chief Technical Officer, Dr Olorunwa Tijani, both enjoined residents to enhance environment-friendly habits and stop patronizing carts pushers.

The Community Development Committee chairman for Lagos Island West, Chief Abu Elemoro, commended LAWMA for the stakeholders’ meeting, calling for a continuation of such consultation, to arrest the people’s attention.

Also present were iyaloja general Lagos Island West; Alhaja Rasikat Abeje Lasisi, supervisor for the environment; Alhaji Audu Atanda, AGM performance management; Mrs Tawa Oyekanmi, AGM west district; Mr Akinwale Adeshina, among others.
