The Lagos State Government has assured citizens that the present administration will continue to ensure that plastic waste recycling is developed through the provision of land spaces and collection centres.

The Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, gave this assurance on Friday during the closing of a five-day training on plastic waste recycling organised for 420 retirees in the state, in Alausa, Ikeja.

Muri-Okunola, who was represented by the Secretary, Staff Housing Board, Abdulrafiu Fashola, urged the retirees to take advantage of the entrepreneurship opportunities in the recycling value chain.

He said, “I will like to urge you that there is a need to put into action all you have learned in this five-day summit and training and pay attention to the knowledge that has been impacted on you on plastic waste management starting from the collecting, sorting, shredding, washing, melting and bagging of the plastic to the final stage.

“I also want to assure you that the Lagos State Government, through the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources and Lagos Waste Management Authority, has reiterated its commitment to the development of the 12 land spaces secured for the development of recyclables collection centres and the four built sites currently in operation.”

The retirees, in a communiqué, read on their behalf by the class governor, Mr Joseph Alao, commended the state government for the initiative.
