Waste Management Boss Talks On Sewage Disposal (By Matthew Jabby, Source: Concord)

July 28, 2013

Manager of the Freetown Waste Management Company (FWMC) has told Concord Times in an exclusive interview that they are a responsible company that is doing all they could to control sewage disposal in the city.

Sulaiman Zainu Parker explained that the FWMC is faced with lots of challenges including funding, payment of salary to staff and mobility to fast track their activities across the city.

“It has taken over 20 years without accessing vehicles from the central government. Even salary for our staff is difficult to come by,” he said.

As a company, Parker said they are only receiving donations from concerned individuals, adding that they are in need of more vehicles to ensure proper cleaning of the city. Freetown, he observed, has been swarmed by a lot of provincial traders who, according to him, are mostly responsible for the filthy state of the city.

The FWMC boss further noted that Masada, with whom they had competed for the contract to clean the city, has only six vehicles as opposed to the 10 which he claimed they have.

He called on the government to pay more attention to the cleaning of the city by equipping the company with the necessary machinery to be able to effectively carry out their duties.
