In anticipation of large volume of wastes expected due to its new waste management strategies, Ogun State government has begun the rehabilitation and upgrade of five dumpsites across the State.

Speaking during clearing of some dumpsites in Abeokuta, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Environment and the General Mananger, Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA), Mr. Oladimeji Oresanya, said dumpsites to be rehabilitated were; Saje, Abeokuta; Ikoto, Ijebu-Ode; Okediya, Sagamu; Akinside, Ibogun and Kurata in Sango Ota.

He said the rehabilitation would make the dumpsites accessible during rainy and dry season, advising compactor drivers to move in when dumping their refuse to avoid wastes on the road, as the sites were now properly organised.
