To address the menace of improper waste disposal in Liberia’s biggest commercial city, the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) has launched a new wave of Waste Collection named “PCC On The Road”.
Aimed at keeping streets and community clean the project will alleviate and control the disposal of waste within the municipality of Paynesville.
Marketers and residents at various markets will begin breathing fresh air, as the new level of waste management innovation will cover the long-standing garbage issues as well as the sanctification of the city principle stress.
The City Government intervention comes amidst huge demand to clear the stockpile of garbage that has been and continues to see at several locations in the city.
Garbage has served as a blockage to the entrances of several markets and streets something that continues to create an oozing odour for community dwellers, buyers, and the marketers themselves.
Speaking at the ceremony the city manager Stanley Y. Zahn, thanked Mayor Palm B. Taylor for the level of innovation that will help and ensure that the stockpile of garages along the streets of conner is removed.
“We want to appreciate our Mayor for using her lobbying power on behalf of the citizens of Paynesville that we at the City cooperation now have seven trucks, two front-end loaders and twenty-three new tricycles which are more welcoming because it will help us keep our city clean”.
According to him, before the appointment of Mayor Taylor, the PCC did not have a single dump truck either to talk about vehicles or tricycles for garage purposes.
He further that the city has been having serious constraints with the disposal of the city waste noting that PCC does not have a single transfer station something that the city Government continue to be challenged with.
“For those that may not know, the city cooperation not picking up garbage in the streets is not deliberate; it is not also because of lack of ideas for which you may have seen dirt in the streets all the time but we have been challenged”.
Mr Zahn maintained that the new mobile waste anthology will help the city Government to clean every corner of the city on time.
Meanwhile, the city manager Stanley Y. Zahn says, the project is not being done alone but the inclusiveness of the community through different community leadership.
“It is a collective effort of the PCC and the community leaders, we at the city cooperation have been engaged with our community and each of our communities have will a garbage collection schedule available for the smoothest of this mobile waste project”.
The trucks and tricycles will be collecting dirt from one community to another depending on the schedule saying there will be affordable and reasonable fees attached to all communities to buttress the petroleum and maintenance of the equipment among others.
