Assemblyman cautions against dumping of refuse on highways

Assemblyman for Pokrom Nsabaa near Nsawam in the Eastern Region, Daniel Amedi, has cautioned travelers to desist from using towns around highways as refuse damps.
According to him, owners of private vehicles who ply Pokrom Nsabaa have developed the habit of dumping refuse along the highway.
He noted that with the outbreak of coronavirus, these travelers drop PPE’s such as nose masks which are usually picked up and used by children in the area.
“It’s sad that people pack rubbish from their homes and instead of giving it to refuse collectors, they keep it and then throw it into bushes near highways when they are travelling.”
“These people speed off when they are spotted since they are always driving. This is causing a serious problem  in the area. We are close to Nsawam and Aburi and we have been battling this situation for a while now,” he added.
Asked what he has done as an assembly man for the area, Daniel Amedi explained that the issue has gotten out of hand since the perpetrators of these acts are usually persons plying the route to other areas and not inhabitants of the town.
He called on the general public and drivers of private cars who ply highways to exhibit some sense of responsibility and desist from the indiscriminate discarding of refuse.
