 Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has a remarkable story in the history of Lagos State
 and till date, it still continues to make visible and contributory impact in the metamorphosis of

WELCOME NOTE FROM THE MANAGING DIRECTOR
 

Over the years, we have grown in leaps and bounds, multiplying in numbers as our departments increased. Lagos being a city
