LAWMA to name and shame residents who indulge in reckless waste disposal

The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) will soon begin a campaign tagged: Hall of Fame and Wall of Shame, to recognise efforts of individuals whose activities promote environmental cleanliness in the state, while naming and shaming residents who indulge in reckless waste disposal.

LAWMA disclosed in a statement following the arrest and sentencing to community service by a mobile court of some persons caught disposing waste in unauthorized locations in the state.

It said that days of condoning littering and indiscriminate waste disposal in the metropolis were over; adding that aside from carrying out a community service, offenders would be named and shamed, using the agency’s social media handles and other public communication channels.

It further appealed to parents to properly guide their children and wards against harmful environmental practices, warning that anyone caught dumping waste indiscriminately would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
