BAC signed MoU with 5 Private companies for garbage collection Initiatives

The Brikama Area Council has on Tuesday signed and launched a waste management project called “Seneya Project” with five private companies for waste collection within the West Coast Region.

The partnership is set to provide effective waste management service delivery to the desperately needed people of the region at an affordable price, dependable and regular service.

The signing ceremony held at the Brikama Area Council premises, was one of its kind since the new council assumed into office in May 2023.

The waste collection project is set to commence Wednesday 19 July, 2023 from Kombo North District which is aimed to provide a weekly waste collection service to the piloted areas which will increase to twice a week in the near future.

The companies signed includes Jatta and Sons Waste Management Company, Setal-Gam Waste Management, Krocon Waste Management, Dankuto Waste Management and BMM Waste Management with others to come.

Speaking at the ceremony, Yankuba Darbore, newly elect Chairman of the Brikama Area Council said the project launched is conceived by the Brikama Area Council to provide a sustainable challenges facing the people of West Coast Region. 

He said that the challenges faced was a lack of an effective waste management service for the many households, commercial and industrial waste produced in the region.

Chairman Darboe revealed saying that “I encountered these challenges of our people during my campaign for the leadership of this council and it is often one of the most complained challenges of the residents of our region.”

“As a result, our people have been left to manage their waste on their own. This situation had compelled many of our residents to resort to dumping waste at any available space of convenient to them, which is a grave threat to our environment. Whilst those who thrive to have their waste collected regularly, do so at a huge financial cost,” he added. 

He noted that it would be daunting task or almost impossible for the Council alone to be able to address the challenge of waste management in the region in the quickest possible time.

For that reason, he said that his office had to engage and reach out to the private sector business engaged in waste management services in order to partner with them in their quest to finding a lasting solution to their waste management debacle in the West Coast Region. 

Through them, he said that they have now added 9 very big refuse trucks to their fleet of waste collection to collect waste in their region.
