Garbage collection maintained-Chingola
By ALICE NACHILEMBE
Chingola Mayor Johnson Kang’ombe has commended the Local Authority for maintaining the garbage situation in the district by utilising the newly purchased equipment.
Mr Kang’ombe said that the machines have been put to good use as seen by the garbage collection situation which has been maintained in most areas in the district especially in public places.
He said that garbage disposal is a challenge as people are not mindful of how to dispose garbage hence the need for thorough attention that it requires.
The Mayor has also warned residents who are fond of disposing garbage anyhow especially in drainages during this season to desist from it.
Mr Kang’ombe said that the issue of drainage blocking is because of negligence dumping by some residents.
“It is the responsibility of everyone to maintain sanity and cleanness in the district, so I want to assure the residents that we will do our best and the residents should also do their part,’’ he said.
