Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr has urged Freetown residents to cease utilizing Clean Salone collectors for waste disposal. The Mayor emphasized the existence of officially designated Waste Service Providers across the city, emphasizing their responsibility for collecting all waste materials.
“To maintain the cleanliness of Freetown, please exclusively engage FCC-approved waste service providers! Dial 8244 from any network to obtain contact details of approved waste service providers in your vicinity. Avoid using ‘Clean Salone’ collectors who unlawfully dump garbage along streets, gutters, and waterways,” Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr declared.
The Mayor’s strong stance against the unauthorized disposal of waste materials aims to enhance sanitation and environmental sustainability within the city. She highlighted the detrimental impact of illegal dumping by “Clean Salone” collectors on Freetown’s streets and water systems.
Furthermore, Mayor Aki-Sawyerr issued a clear warning to Clean Salone collectors, instructing them to halt the dumping of garbage in the city’s public spaces. She stressed that any individual caught violating these regulations would face severe legal consequences.
To facilitate compliance with the new waste management directives, the Mayor provided a dedicated helpline—8244—accessible from any network. This helpline serves as a resource for citizens to easily obtain contact information for FCC-approved waste service providers operating in their respective areas.
The Mayor’s proactive measures underscore the city’s commitment to fostering a clean and healthy environment. By encouraging residents to collaborate with approved waste service providers, the initiative aims to mitigate the adverse effects of illegal waste disposal, creating a safer and more sustainable Freetown.
