Residents in Tanke community, Ilorin South Local Government Area have decried the lack of proper waste disposal system within the area despite the state government effort to build a sustainable waste management system.
It is recalled that in a recent report by the National Hydrological Service Agency (NHISA), Kwara was listed among the 32 states prone to flooding through the annual flood outlook.
Royal Times reports that some residents, who reside in Sanrab, Tanke community dump their refuse in the drainage, relying on flood as alternative to the waste management people.
A resident of the community, Mr. Emmanuel confirmed the poor waste disposal habit in the community, adding that although the waste management officials often come around, they only pick up organized dirt. On his part, Mr. Oladimeji claimed the waste management officials don’t come often.
