From Ogundele Olanrewaju

The Oyo State Government, on Wednesday, has

approved a new waste management initiative that will assist the waste management drive of the state government.

While speaking with journalists after the state executive meeting, the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Abiodun Oni, announced that the executive council has approved the new waste management initiative to solve the problem of waste management in the state.

Oni said the new waste management will be managed by Monttainai Recycling Africa and supervised by the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources.

He said: “Part of what we have discussed is how to resolve the issue of waste management in Oyo State. We also discussed some proposals about how to get a sustainable waste management measure that can resolve the crisis we have in the sector. We believe this will take care of the challenge in the state. 

“We don’t want anything to happen to the existing PSPs that have capacity. This is also about our citizens, who need to understand how they need to dispose their waste. 

“We don’t want people to be throwing waste in canals, streams. We have to generate waste and cannot see it as a problem but we should bring up a solution by managing it.”
