Mr Oppong made the presentation after six hours clean-up exercise during the national sanitation day at Agona Swedru on Saturday.

The residents of Agona Swedru defied the heavy downpour which started at dawn and ended at about 0730 hours to participate fully in the programme.

They desilted choked gutters, swept public places and weeded outgrown areas along the highway at Agona Swedru.

Mr Oppong said the Assembly would soon receive tricycles from Cape Coast Regional Office to boost the operations of Zoomlion Company in Agona West Municipality.

The MCE expressed the hope that the arrival of the new skip loader would help reduce the situation of piled- up uncollected refuse containers in the Agona Swedru Municipality.

He urged the company to adopt the culture of maintenance to prolong the life span of the new truck.

The MCE said the Assembly had also introduced house to house refuse collection to ensure environmental cleanliness in the Municipality.

Mr Oppong commended the security agencies in the Agona West Municipality for their continued support of the exercise since its inception almost two years ago.

He also praised the Agona Swedru and Agona Nyakrom branches of the Seventh Day Adventist Churches for their regular participation in the exercise.

Mr Christian Ocran, Agona West Municipal Director of Zoomlion Company Limited, assured the MCE that arrival of the new truck would help reduce the complaints by residents about non-collection of refuse.

Mr George Freeman, Agona West Environmental and Sanitation Chief Officer and Mr Akyea Addo, Agona Swedru Urban Council Chairman, witnessed the presentation ceremony.
