NPA, African Circle clear refuse dump at Apapa ports

NPA, African Circle clear refuse dump at Apapa ports The Nigerian Ports Authority has collaborated with a pollution management firm, African Circle Pollution Management Limited, to carry out the evacuation of waste around Anjorin Market and the Main Gate of the Lagos Port Complex, Apapa.

A statement from the ACPML indicated that the initiative was part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.

In the statement signed by the Regional Manager, West, ACPML, Mrs. Oyenike Shobowale, the firm noted that prior to the evacuation, the access road along Anjorin Market and Lagos Ports Main Gate was converted to a waste dump by residents, food vendors and other stakeholders operating along that axis.

“This considerably defaced the aesthetic value of the environment as well as impacting negatively on public health,” it said.

The statement added that the NPA and the ACPML had carried out a sensitisation and public enlightenment on waste management practices and effect of indiscriminate disposal of waste for stakeholders within the area.
