Zoomlion Descends On Odawna
Zoomlion Ghana Limited, one of the leading waste collection firms operating in the country, has embarked on a three-day massive clean-up exercise at Odawna, a suburb of Accra.
Residents of Odawna, one of the worst-hit suburbs of the metropolis in the June 3, 2015 twin flood-fire disaster that sent shockwaves across the entire nation, joined hands with Zoomlion to carry out the exercise within their area last Friday.
The exercise formed part of the waste collector’s three weeks clean-up campaign unfolded about two weeks ago to collect the heaps of rubbish across the nation’s capital following the flood incidence which left in its wake scores of dead persons and filths.
Other areas expected to be cleaned by the company as part of the campaign include the Iran Clinic, Circle and the Kaneshie market – all within Accra.
Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the exercise at Odawna Sahara, Zoomlion’s District Operations Supervisor for Korley Klottey South, Mohammed Abdul-Rahim, expressed satisfaction with the level of work that has so far been done by his outfit after the flood.
He commended some residents who fervently assisted the company in undertaking the exercise but, however, bemoaned the rate at which residents continued to dispose of their filths indiscriminately, calling on the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) to intensify its educational campaign on sanitation.
Meanwhile, officials of AMA, including the Mayor of Accra, Alfred Okoe Vanderpuye, were seen going round from house to house at Odawna during the clean-up exercise, informing residents located around flood-roots to evacuate to give way for an upcoming demolition exercise.
