Anambra State Waste Management Agency (ASWAMA) is putting plans in motion to commence motoring of waste management and evacuation in manufacturing companies in the state, to ensure that they meet national and international standards of chemical waste disposal mechanism.

Speaking to journalists in Awka on Monday, the Chief Executive Officer of the agency, Mr. Phil Chinwuba, said that ASWAMA had already engaged consultants under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement to assist in ensuring that such wastes are well evacuated and disposed of in such a way that the health of the people is not put at risk and to ensure that clean environment is maintained.

He noted that the agency had done series of sensitization programmes to acquaint the general public with the vital roles they should be playing to make the state healthy through proper waste disposal.

According to Chinwuba, the agency is collaborating with the Ministries of Health and Environment in the areas of chemical, medical, general and human waste disposal, adding that the wastes would be treated to get all the economic values from it for farming activities.

While calling on the people to key into the new idea of waste management in the state for a healthier living, the ASWAMA boss explained that modern methods of waste management could help to boost the economy of the state.

In his words: “The modern method of managing waste was designed to ensure healthier living and better environment which requires that people properly dispose their wastes in allotted dump sites in the state for evacuation by the agency. This will ensure healthier environment and reduce diseases caused by poor environment.”
