NPA inaugurates waste management trucks at Tin-Can Island Port

The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) on Friday said that it had inaugurated five garbage trucks at the Tin-Can Island Port.
This is contained in a statement made available to the Newsmen in Lagos.
It said that the NPA inaugurated the trucks to boost its waste management efforts at the port.
The statement explained that the trucks would ensure that waste generated by vessels at the ports do not litter the nation’s waterways.
It added that the trucks were procured by the African Circle Pollution Management under a joint venture agreement between the company and the NPA.
The statement further said the acquisition of the trucks was in compliance with the provisions of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Code on Marine Pollution, to which NPA is a signatory.
Mr David Omonibeke, the Executive Director, Marine and Operations of NPA, said the authority remained committed to safety of the nation’s waterways.
NAN reports that the African Circle Pollution Management is the Marine Pollution Waste Reception Facility Operator for NPA.
