The Central Regional Manager of waste management company, Zoomlion, Samuel Edu, is cautioning the public to stop the disposal of used sanitary pads into Zoomlion waste bins in both residential and public places.
According to him, disposal of used sanitary pads into waste containers has become a major source of worry for workers of the company in the region.
A situation he says is posing a serious health threat to workers of the company.
The waste manager made the remark in an interview on Adom News at a programme organised to hand over two waste container evacuation trucks, two community containers and 40 residential waste bins to the newly created Assin North District Assembly to fight the huge sanitation challenges in the area.
Samuel Edu, however, cautioned residents of Assin Breku to desist from disposal of faeces, used pad and other waste materials which are likely to put the health of Zoomlion workers in risk.
However, the Assin North DCE, Charles Ohene Andor, pleaded on the people of Assin North to take advantage of the available waste bins to keep the City clean.
Meanwhile, some residents who spoke to Adom News expressed excitement over the development.
They promised to take advantage of the bins to keep the City clean as demanded by the DCE.
