To intensify public awareness on proper refuse disposal and sewage canal clearance

The National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) in Kebbi has promised to assist the State Urban Development Authority with solid waste management.

Dr. Ahmed Kasim, the Coordinator of the agency, stated this in Birnin Kebbi on Monday when he visited the newly appointed General Manager of the urban development authority, Yahaya Chindo.

He called on the authority to solve the waste management challenges, especially by identifying designated dump sites where refuse in the metropolis and urban centres are located, and evacuating them.

Kasim also advised the new helmsman to encourage stakeholders on environmental protection, stressing that NESREA would intensify public awareness on proper refuse disposal and sewage canal clearance.

“The recycling of polythene materials would reduce environmental degradation and menace,” he said.

Responding, Chindo said that efforts would be made to collaborate with the agency, with a view to addressing environmental problems in the state.
