The attention of Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has been drawn to the unwholesome environmental practices being carried out by traders at Ladipo Market, Mushin, which has resulted to indiscriminate dumping of waste and degradation of the environment.
LAWMA has in recent times doubled its efforts to ensure that business transactions across markets in Lagos are conducted in a clean and safe environment through timely deployment of trucks for waste evacuation and sweeping of the markets.
However, these efforts are being tainted by the activities of mischievous persons who would rather dump their wastes indiscriminately on the roads than patronize their assigned PSP operators.
LAWMA condemns in strongest terms this unwholesome act being perpetuated by the traders of Ladipo Market as it exposes the environment and the people that do business there to various health dangers.
The Authority seizes this opportunity to urge the merchants at the market to turn a new leaf or face the consequences of the Law. If these heinous acts against the environment continue unabated, the market will be shut till further notice.
LAWMA wants all markets to comply with Environmental Laws of the State which is essential for building a cleaner and healthier environment everyone will be proud of.
Meanwhile, the Authority appeals to all residents in the State to always imbibe the habit of effective waste management by bagging their wastes for easy evacuation by their assigned PSPs.
