As the Ogun State Ministry of Environment commences clearing of illegal dump-sites in the three Senatorial Districts of the State, residents have been warned to desist from dumping refuse at unauthorized places, saying offenders would henceforth be penalised and prosecuted.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Tpl Yetunde Dina made the announcement, when she led officials to clear the illegal dumpsite at Opako, in Adigbe Area of Abeokuta.

Mrs. Dina said it was disheartening that citizens turned a long stretch of the road to a dump site, despite several attempt to discourage them, adding that, anyone caught dumping refuse in the cleared land area would be penalised and prosecuted by the government.

She therefore called on the citizens to dump their refuse at designated dump points, for easy collection by licensed refuse disposers, spread across the State, noting that, illegal dumping pollutes the environment and retard the health and well-being of the people living around the area.
