AMA holds joint meeting with Zoomlion and Trash Masters to discuss alternative measures to solve waste management challenges in the city

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has organized a joint meeting with Zoomlion and Trash Masters to discuss the commencement of a waste management initiative to enhance sanitation and beautification in the Central Business District (CBD).

The meeting, organised on Thursday, 23rd May 2024, at the Accra City Hall, sought to outline a comprehensive plan to tackle waste management challenges by assembling resources and equipment for the smooth implementation of the operation and ensuring the safety of personnel for the exercise.

According to the plan, sanitation officers of the Assembly and street sweepers would be deployed into the CBD to embark on periodic clean-up exercises and desilting works to prevent the adverse effects of perennial rainfall and to rid the city centre of filth.

The Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Hon. Elizabeth K.T. Sackey, in her remarks, announced plans to hold a press conference with key stakeholders to instruct traders and commuters to engage in periodic cleanup exercises and abide by the “Operation Clean Your Frontage” initiative.
