Warri south local government area of Delta state on Thursday took its turn in the ongoing verification/inspection of operational tipping trucks of Private Sector Participants, PSPs by the Delta State Waste Management Board.
The exercise, supervised by the Chairman, members and management staff of the Board, saw the verification of vehicle particulars and inspection of the tipping trucks to ascertain their road worthiness for refuse disposal functions.
Board Chairman, Honourable Emmanuel Chinye, while addressing the PSPs before the exercise, said they should not leave anything to chance as the state government was determined to achieve a cleaner Delta.
Honourable Chinye stated that a dirty environment would not add up to the quest for a Stronger Delta, making it imperative for the PSPs to strive to deliver on their duties without compromise.
He urged the Private Sector Participants to give their clients close marking to avoid lapses that could compel them to engage the services of truck or wheel barrow pushers, as that would negate the whole essence of the Public Private Partnership designed to engender efficiency in waste management in the state.
The Chairman pledged the support of the Board for the PSPs in the discharge of their duties and encouraged them to go all out to capture more clients in their registration drive to permanently change the narrative of indiscriminate dumping of refuse in the Warri metropolis.
Honourable Chinye said the PSPs should distribute the Demand Notice requiring individual and corporate clients to register with them within two weeks, pointing out that an enforcement drive would take place at the expiration of the Demand Notice to ensure compliance.
