Lagos State Government, through the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), has engaged 35 Private Sector Participant (PSP) operators to boost waste evacuation.

Speaking at the inauguration at Olusosun landfill, Ojota, the Managing Director, LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, said the development was a morale booster.

Odumboni, according to a statement on Thursday, said it represented a giant leap in the waste collection effort of the agency.

He said the 35 PSP operators had increased the number of trucks available for waste collection.

This will lead to an increase in the number of daily truck trips to the landfills, Odumboni said.
