The Ecological Restoration Club, an NGO in collaboration with the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly (LaDMA) with funding from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Wednesday, June 27, 2022 organised a training programme on plastic waste segregation for selected schools from the La Municipality.
The schools were St Paul, La Salem Presbyterian Primary, Enobal Primary and Association School were taken through the phases of pull together and positioning plastic waste in their various schools, home and the communities.
The MCE for the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly, Rev Solomon Kotey Nikoi noted that, the training would influence the pupils to abstain from indecorous dumping of waste in the municipality. The Municipal Chief Executive urged the participants school teachers and the pupils to be ambassadors of plastic waste segregation management in all places.
Rev Solomon Kotey Nikoi bemoan the activities of residents who have fashioned unhealthy habit of littering the drains and unauthorised areas with plastic waste, which besieged the Kpeshie Lagoon and the beach whenever it rains heavy.
The MCE was therefore sure that the training programme would give the pupils the platform to be self-discipline on waste management issues.
Mr Odjam mentioned that, the programme is at its pilot stage and appealed to the participants to educate their colleague friends and other close relations to change their attitude towards disposal of plastic waste. Mr Odjam said that the goal for the training is to help reduce the pollution of the environment.
