Lusaka has two million Kilograms of uncollected garbage
Lusaka City Council Director of Public Health Amos Musonda says Lusaka province has 4, 000,000 Kilogram’s of garbage waste in Lusaka province alone.
Speaking at the handover ceremony of 15 trash bins donated by Longacres Lions Club of Lusaka at Lusaka Girls Basic School in Lusaka on Wednesday, Mr Musonda said out of the 4, 000, 000 waste garbage, only 50% of it is collected.
Mr Musonda further disclosed that LCC spends about K1 billion every month in garbage collection within Lusaka.
He said LCC is privileged to receive the waste bins from Longacres Lions Club and further urged pupils at Lusaka Girls School not to adopt a bad behaviour of throwing litter anyhow because they are the agents of change.
