LCC issues another stern warning to illegal garbage collectors
The Lusaka City Council (LCC) has issued another stern warning to unauthorized garbage collectors against illegal garbage collection in the city.
LCC Public Relations Officer (PRO) Henry Kapata said it was illegal for unauthorized individuals to collect garbage in residential areas before signing a memorandum of understanding with the local authority.
Mr. Kapata said this in an interview with ZANIS today.
He noted that all legal garbage collectors have since signed memoranda of understanding with the council and have since been allocated a legal dumping site in Chunga.
He said the council was incensed with illegal garbage collectors who dump the collected refuse indiscriminately.
Mr. Kapata explained that those who would not comply with the law will face the wrath of the law.
He further explained that the authorized garbage collectors were also working with the community in collecting refuse.
Mr. Kapata added that residents should also play a role by not dumping garbage in undesignated places.
