Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) – 
Chairman, Delta State Waste Management Board, Chief Douglas Okolotu has urged Nigerians to always dump their wastes properly to ensure good environment that will encourage investors.

Chief Okolotu who made the call on Thursday during an interview in Asaba, Delta State said: “Nigerians are known for cleanliness but, unfortunately, with the blossoming cities, it is unfortunate that our people are no longer disposing the wastes properly.”

“The way forward is for private sector participation in waste collection to show that our cities are clean,” Chief Okolotu said, disclosing, “in Delta State, we are working to ensure a clean environment though, the financial situation of the country is also, affecting waste management.”

He added, “we are managing the situation in Delta State working with our local government chairmen and I can tell you that we have devised methods to ensure that our towns and cities are clean.”

“Without clean environment, investors cannot come in and we need them, so, our people should dispose their wastes properly and most importantly, avoid dumping wastes at the median or on the roads,” Chief Okolotu said, reiterating, “how can you carry wastes from your house and dump on the road? That is unhealthy and we have set up a task force to monitor activities of Private Sector Participants (PSP) in waste management, our men are working in different parts of the state, though, it requires a lot of money to manage waste; people talk about waste to wealth but, you have to know the tonnage of wastes that comes in before you start thinking about investing in that area.”
