Traders and Drivers call for relocation of thrash bin
The traders of Akim Oda main lorry station in the Birim Central Municipality, together with transport operators are calling for the relocation of a thrash bin situated in the middle of the station.
The waste container, according to the traders was placed there by the local government authorities to discourage littering around the area.
But, to them, the purpose has been defeated as people prefer dumping around the waste bin.
“Once the container is full, people dump around it, making the whole area disgusting and appalling by the stench atmosphere”, they revealed.
They said, the situation has advantaged mosquitoes causing infection to the traders and dwellers in the place.
“Some part of the problems come from the management of the waste container, it can be full for days, they would not come and dispose it off, which also push some people to litter around it”, they stressed.
Speaking to the press today, they called on the authorities to as a matter of urgency relocate the bin and set up a taskforce to deal with recalcitrants individuals who litter the environment.
