Disposal of waste materials is a major concern of Government. As one of the initiatives of the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Addo to make Accra the cleanest city of Ghana. Such initiative would become a reality only if citizens can contribute to that.
Accra produces at least 3,500 tonnes of waste daily. With some private waste management companies like the Zoom lion Ghana Limited is the giant in the waste management as well as environmental sanitation business in Ghana, Accra Solid and Liquid Waste management Limited which was established to assist the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (A.M.A) in its sanitation operations. It has facilitated the collection and disposal off all manner of solid waste to landfills and dumping sites.
