The Executive Chairman of the Delta State Waste Management Board, Honourable Emmanuel Chinye, on Friday visited the Agbor dump site to inspect the pushing of the site.
Honourable Chinye, who expressed satisfaction with the level of work done, said government would continue to maintain all approved dump sites across the state to provide enough dumping space for the PSPs to operate.
He emphasized that the era of indiscriminate dumping of waste was over with the Private Sector Participants in place, insisting that every resident of the state, particularly in the major towns and cities, must register with a PSP to ensure a well coordinated refuse disposal system.
The DSWMB Chairman renewed his appeal to residents to desist from engaging the services of wheel barrow pushers to dispose of their waste as anyone caught would bear the full weight of the law.
Honourable Chinye commended the PSPs in Agbor for putting the dump site to good use and assured them that the Board would continue to provide the enabling environment for them to operate.
He, however, urged them to take their job seriously in order to build the confidence of their clients in the system, as they could only remain in business when they did not give the clients any reason to complain about their services.
The Chairman, Ika chapter PSPs Association, Mr. Emmanuel Obior, commended the current Board under the leadership of Honourable Chinye for a robust collaboration with the PSPs, which had greatly enhanced their performance.
