The Managing Director/CEO, Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, has urged residents of the Mainland Local Government and Yaba LCDA, to embrace the culture of waste sorting at source, to reduce pressure on landfills around the state.

Odumboni said this at a meeting with solid waste management stakeholders in those councils, comprising market leaders, artisans and representatives of CDAs/CDCs, where he enjoined them to look inwards for local solutions to tackle waste management challenges, including active engagement of youths for waste policing in the area.

The participants spoke freely on environmental challenges in their various domains, as the LAWMA boss responded to the issues raised.

Hon. Nurudeen Aileru who represented Yaba LCDA Chairman, commended LAWMA for the spirited effort at achieving a clean city, promising that the councils would play their parts, towards achieving a sustainable environment.
