Edo State Waste Management Board has set up a monitoring team to check indiscriminate waste disposal across the State.

A Waste Manager, Mr Emmanuel Iriogbe in the Board, said this on the sidelines of ‘Operation Clean Up Edo’ Campaign on major Streets in Benin City.

The exercise which is in partnership with private waste Managers, will help to monitor compliance and make the State clean.

This followed a stay of execution order of Appeal court in Benin which granted stay of execution of the State High court judgment which (temporarily set aside), prohibited the government and its agents from collecting revenue for waste from the public, pending the determination of the substantive suit.

The State government directive is expected to scale up sanitation habit among residents towards a clean and healthy environment, especially in public places.

Addressing journalists during the exercise, General Manager, Edo State Waste Board, Mr Charles Imariagbe assured that the Board will sustain its awareness creation campaign and preserve the State’s aesthetic appeal.

“Today, we are giving life to the directive of the acting governor, to ensure the entire Benin City is clean.

“It is a joint exercise. We are working with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainability, Ministry of Urban and Physical Planning, and the State’s Public Works Volunteers (PUWOV).

According to him, “We have up to 100 trucks for the clean-up exercise.

In line with Mr. Godwin Obaseki, State governor’s disposition to governance, offenders will be prosecuted in mobile courts in the days ahead.
