Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Joan Gordon Webley, has disclosed that new tenders for garbage collection would be requested by March 2008.
“We will have tendered for garbage collection in a lot of areas by next March and we will be dealing with collection in a different way,” she told JIS News in an interview.
Mrs. Gordon Webley indicated that the fleet of trucks was being given special attention at this time, noting that a committee had been established to look at the fleet and a report has been prepared.
This report, she said, would be the basis on which funding is being sought to bring back into service, in a month, most of the serviceable units.
The Executive Director attributed the poor state of the vehicles to abuse.
