A Waste Management Company based in Accra, Jekora Ventures Limited,  has procured two new  garbage compactor trucks to improve waste collection  in the Osu Klotey sub metro of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly as parts of efforts to keep Accra Clean.

The double axial trucks has a capacity on compactor volume of 20 cubic metres which translates into servicing 3000 households within its service area.

The Managing Director of Jekora Ventures Limited Ing. Immanuel Nartey- Tokoli who presented the trucks to the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) for inspection on Friday when he led a  delegation from the city of Blantyre in  Malawi who are on a working visit to Accra  to  learn about waste management policies implemented by the Assembly.

He said the equipment would boost quick collection of refuse within the Osu Klotey sub metro comprising communities such as Ridge, Osu, Adabraka, Asylum Down and parts of Tudu.

According to him, as part of efforts to replenish old equipment the two trucks were brought in to augment the company’s technical fleets in order to improve service delivery to some 24000 households within the Osu Klotey sub metro.

“The two trucks, will help us provide quality service to additional 3000 households within the Osu Klotey sub metro where AMA has mandated us to work,” he said.

The Chief Executive Office of AMA, Mohammed Adjei Sowah who inspected the trucks commended Jekora for investing in equipment to help deal with sanitation within the metropolis.

He pointed out that the introduction of modern equipment would go a long way to reduce the turnaround time in the collection of refuse in the city and urged other private waste management companies servicing the metropolis to invest in such equipment to help make Accra clean.

He thanked the Malawian delegation for choosing Accra adding that the visit is a sign of hope  that something good is being done to improve sanitation in the City.
