Ghana’s foremost waste management giant, Zoomlion Ghana Limited, marked this year’s World Earth Day by engaging in a massive cleanup exercise at the Nungua beach to rid it of huge waste materials that have engulfed the beach.
The exercise, which was spearheaded by Zoomlion, with support from Guinness Ghana, Nshorena and other stakeholders, witnessed staff of these companies busily sweeping, picking up plastic materials and evacuating heaps of refuse that have marred the beauty of the Nungua beach.
The Communications officer of Zoomlion, Mr. James Deku, who led the team to clean the beach, expressed shock over the quantum of waste that was cleared from the shore of the beach.
Mr. Deku made a passionate call on government to, as a matter of urgency, engage the services of sanitation workers to guard and clean our beaches to ensure that these tourists’ centers are managed well to help boost tourism and generate the needed revenue for development.
He added that Zoomlion, as part of activities marking the World Earth Day, also partnered Miss Earth beauty pageants from Ghana, Lebanon, England and India to donate waste management equipment to the office of the First Lady of Ghana, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-ddo, and the University of Professional Studies In Accra (UPSA), among others, to champion the need to save the earth by keeping our communities clean, green and healthy.
The Assembly member of the Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA), Mr. Alfred A. Laryea, commended Zoomlion for their commitment to ensuring that the environment is kept clean.
He emphasized that the Assembly will enforce its sanitation bye-laws to prosecute those who litter indiscriminately.
