In a bid to make the Cleaner Lagos Initiative more effectively stable in Lagos, a Public-Private company (Visionscape Sanitation Solutions) tasked with the purpose of making this dream a reality has partnered with the Lagos state Government. The partnership has brought about the consignment of 100 brand new waste management vehicle fleet which consists of a series of waste trucks from various rear end loaders to operational vehicles.
In an interview with the Chief Operations Officer (Visionscape Sanitation Solutions) Thomas Forgacs, he asserted that “The addition to the waste management fleet is in line with our commitment to provide integrated waste management services, using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative solutions to help transform lagos megacity”
Being a top and leading pioneer in environmental solutions, the Visionscape trucks are fully equipped and embedded with cutting-edge features, which include a Global Positioning System (GPS), radio-frequency identification (RFID), and automotive Controller Area Network (CAN) bus system. These featured vehicles are being deployed to help communicate between trucks in respective locations while in duty.
While unraveling their vision and mission in the State’s environment, Forgacs stated that:
“In the last six months, we have surveyed all of Lagos State and collated vital data to make our operations highly effective. We therefore understand population density of the communities and areas that will be serviced, even up to the number of streets and households across the State. This preliminary assessment has aided us to know the amount of waste that will be generated in any particular location”.
The state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode complained bitterly on the menace of cart pushers and how they rob most homes. While trying to make this approved sanitation plan more effectively stable, he warned residents against patronizing cart pushers, asserting that anyone caught patronizing them would face prosecution as they (cart pushers) had been banned across the state.
