Ogun State Lunches Waste Management Initiative

The Ogun State Government announced the launch of its “Renew and Reuse” trash management campaign, which aims to encourage responsible waste management among State citizens through charitable giving and acts of kindness.

At the initiative’s debut in the capital of Ogun State, Abeokuta, Ola Oresanya, the State’s Commissioner for Environment, revealed this.

Under the project, anyone living in the State will be able to donate their unwanted goods by using collecting boxes strategically positioned throughout the State. Other residents who might require the donated things will have access to them.

He said, “Ogun State government has commenced a Renew and Reuse Waste Agenda with a call on residents of the state to be their brother’s keepers, especially during this season of love and giving which is in line with Prince Dapo Abiodun administration’s social inclusion.

“The agenda seeks to bond every strata of the population together through the renewal of some items considered as waste to useful materials for reuse by those who need them thereby promoting human kindness. This would be done through several collection boxes placed at Government Offices, prominent eateries, stores, outlets and Non Governmental Organizations offices spread across the state.”

Additionally, he wants people to realise that trash is not waste unless it is thrown away on its own, just as one person’s trash can make another happy. He said; “What you want to throw away is what some people are looking for, so don’t throw them away as this is an avenue for you to show human kindness, especially at this time when the federal and state governments are giving out palliatives to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy and global economic downturn.”
