Engr Joseph expressed his dissatisfaction at the indiscriminate dumping of refuse in drainages and along road channels, emphasising the importance of proper waste disposal practices to protect the environment and public health.

“We cannot keep disposing waste indiscriminately,it harms the ecosystem and poses a serious risk to human health”

Engr Joseph stressed that the government has made environmental protection a top priority and urged residents to take responsibility for the waste they generate. He called for an end to the sabotage of waste management initiatives and for individuals to adopt proper waste disposal habits.

The Commissioner commended the State Sanitation and Waste Management Board for their efforts in timely waste evacuation but urged them to do more to ensure a clean environment.
