NC Sanitors and Services, a sanitation company in Kakata, Margibi County has denied claims of the presence of huge pile of overstayed garbage in the streets.

Alvin Toe, NC business manager said waste does not stay in the streets as claimed by the citizens, but noted that only happens when there is a breakdown in the system.

Some residents of Kakata recently accused the company of keeping dirt in the streets for a week or more, thereby creating health hazard for them. They also claimed there is no impact of the money being collected from them by the sanitation company.

NC has however said wastes are packed and immediately collected by the company`s employees on a daily basis for dumping. “The company has the capacity and manpower to keep the city clean; there are trucks and buckets bins given to the various communities free of charge,” he said.

“Our workers normally sweep the streets two times a day especially during the evening and morning hours of each day.”  “The claim by the citizens is false and misleading; garbage does not stay in the street for a length of time as they are saying.

The longest time garbage stay in the street is a day, when there is a breakdown in the system but actually we clean the streets three times a day; so there is no point in time that dirt stays in the streets for week.”

Toe also denied claims by the citizens that they are not feeling the impact of money being collected from them by company. He said, “The Company does not dump waste closer to their community.”

Toe meanwhile called on the citizens to work collaboratively with the company to give Kakata and its surroundings a facelift. The company in May 2015 signed an agreement with the city government of Kakata to clean the municipality.
