(PICS): Lagos govt agency seals off residential building for using cart pushers to dispose waste

For using cart pushers to dispose its waste instead of using approved waste disposal operators, an agency of the Lagos State government on Wednesday sealed off a building in the state.

Officials of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority ((LAWMA) sealed off the building, situated at 73, Ekoro Road, Abule Egba, after they said they caught occupants red-handed patronizing cart pushers in disposing their waste.

It was also discovered that the occupants decided to use the services of the cart pushers because they were indebted to one of the Private Sector Participating (PSP) operators in the state.

According to the Lagos Waste Reporters, an arm of LAWMA that reports its activities, on its Twitter handle on Wednesday, the sealing off of the building was led by head of the enforcement team of LAWMA, Mr. Idowu Sanni, who added that it is expedient for residents to dispose their wastes through approved operators.
