Association of Waste Management in Lagos has received N3billion to enhance the waste collection, aggregation and recycling methods, among other activities.
The group, which operates under the auspices of the Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria, AWAMN, received the credit line from First City Monument Bank, FCMB, to improve its operations statewide.
The Managing Director, FCMB, Mrs Yemisi Edun, in Lagos yesterday, hinted that the Lagos State Waste Management Agency, LAWMA, facilitated the process that led to the dispatch of the funds.
Edun said the funds would assist in upscaling AWAMN’s operations to safeguard the Lagos environment, as the bank noted it recognises a cleaner and more sustainable environment as key to building a better world for present and future generations.
Association of Waste Management to Upgrade Services
The Managing Director also stated that the Association would utilise the finance to buy modern equipment for optimal work performance.
She further hinted that the group would create room to upgrade their human resources department for smooth and efficient waste management.
The impact of the group’s performance is expected to expand across the nooks and crannies of Lagos State, as the city once was referred to as the dirtiest in the world. The Government hopes to change this narrative.
