–As DTSG Moves To Seal Businesses, Apprehend Residents That Fail To Comply
As part of his sincere desire to provide an effective waste management mechanism, and the dire need for a cost friendly waste bin for the proper disposal of municipal solid waste in the State, the Executive Governor of Delta State, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has slashed the price of waste bin produced by the Delta State Government.
According to a statement from the Office of the Commissioner for Environment, the price was slashed from Ten Thousand Naira (N10, 000) to Five Thousand Naira (N5, 000) and from Fifteen Thousand Naira (N15, 000) to Ten Thousand Naira (N10, 000) for residential and business premises respectively, as the State Government directed that a flexible payment plan be made for the benefit of all citizens and residents in the state.
The statement in part read: “It is hereby announced for the information of the general public, particularly Deltans that the State Ministry of Environment is using this medium to sensitize Deltans against the unwholesome practice of burning of waste and the ugly trend in which persons, organizations and business owners dispose their refuse indiscriminately along the street and highway thereby defacing the aesthetic of the environment.
“In order to check this ugly trend and ensure that the beauty and cleanliness of our environment is sustained and remarkably improved upon, the state government is directing the general public, most especially persons, organizations and business owners to have a government waste bin for appropriate disposal of refuse by an accredited Private Sector Participants (PSP) waste collector to a government approved dumpsites.”
The Commissioner for Environment, Hon. John Nani also directed all Local Government Councils, Waste Management Board, Delta State Capital Development Agency, State Sanitation Taskforce and other relevant authorities to monitor their areas and ensure that every residential, organizational and business premises acquire a government waste bin at the subsidized rates of Five Thousand Naira (5,000) for residential and Ten thousand Naira (10,000) for corporate organizations, from their respective Local Government Council secretariats or the Delta State Capital Development Agency, Asaba.
He urged the general public to “take adequate advantage of the Governor’s benevolence and acquire the government waste bin, as the State Ministry of Environment will from 1st November, 2017 apprehend residents, seal up business premises without the subsidized government waste bin, and have them face a special sanitation court headed by a magistrate and fined accordingly.”
