Techiman Municipality has acquired a new landfill site with the capacity to recycle waste and provide electricity to augment the national grade.
According the Municipal chief executive, (MCE) Mr. John Donyina engineers were on the site and were counting months to complete work.
He said the Assembly had also acquired 45 refuse dump containers to improve sanitation in the Municipality. When asked, he said 27 of the containers would be used in the municipality and the rest, in the communities.
Mr. Donyina lamented at disgusting level poor sanitation in the area stating that there were number of heaped-refuse dumps for decades in the municipality and that he was determine to clear all before his tenure of office as the MCE ended.
He said most houses in the municipality were without toilets, and also the municipality was facing inadequate levels of public toilet facilities.
Also, per this tabloid’s observation, even some of the Assembly’s facilities are not having washrooms; notable among them is the Assembly storey building stores at the Techiman Zongo lorry station.
To this, the MCE said efforts were under way to improve the situation, particularly with the completion of the new landfill site.
When asked, he said the Assembly would collaborate with an organization called Friends of Rivers to restore and maintain dying rivers in the municipality.
A view at the Techiman natural bridge river and one other which used to bustle with beauty to the municipality revealed disgusting levels of plastic waste, sand and massive encroachment levels.
