Lagos Today: Distribution Of Cleaner Lagos Initiative Free Thrash Bags Begins (Photos)

The Lagos state government, in an effort to make the Cleaner Lagos Initiative achieve its main goal, have decided to give thrash bags to Lagosians.

These are photos of Distribution of Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI) thrash bags free to residents of Amukoko and Alaba Oro in Ajeromi Ifelodun LCDA today.

According to the Operations Director, Visionscape, Tarak Sahay, one million bags will be distributed in this first phase of the exercise.

That was made known during an interactive forum organized recently by Visionscape with Area Managers under the Cleaner Lagos Initiative.

The meeting held at Visionscape office located at Ogudu GRA, Lagos.

Visionscape is a leading global environmental utility group assigned by the Lagos State Government to provide waste management services.

Mr. Sahay said: “In the last six months we have surveyed the entire city of Lagos and collated vital data to make this initiative very effective. We therefore understand population density of the communities and areas we are working even up to the number of streets and households in the state. This fair assessment aids us to know the amount of waste that can be generated in any particular location. And accordingly, we are going to create adequate capacity required in terms of number of bins for the areas.

Mr. Tarak Sahay, Operations Director; Mr. Tunji Sasore, Operations Manager; Mr. Thomas Forgacs, Chief Operations Officer and Mr. Aravindu Valmeekan, Operations Manager, Lagos West, all of Visionscape, during Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI) Area Managers Meeting held on Saturday at Visionscape Office, Ogudu, GRA, Lagos.

“So, when they use the nylon bags to hold their domestic waste, they will move it to the collection points where we have located nearest to them. And the CLI workers will take it from there. In the long run, we will be providing the waste bags to each household in the entire city of Lagos.

He also said plans were on to ensure wastes are collected weekly, adding that community involvement is important in achieving the goals of Cleaner Lagos Initiative.
