Private Sector Partnership (PSP)
Private Sector participation in waste collection and transportation has been in existence since 1997 under the Ministry of Environment when the pilot scheme took off in two (2) Local Government Areas (Kosofe and Bariga). The programme was further expanded to other areas in 1999 with setback in 2002 as a result of poor management. A review was done in 2004 and new mega PSPs were appointed to render service in 20LGs / 37LCDAs based on technical capacity. A new Management Team was appointed for LAWMA in May 2005 with a mandate to rid the city of filth, and bring about improvement in the delivery of Solid Waste Services to the citizens of Lagos.
