Sonko stated that his administration will also partner with existing community initiatives such as Constituency Development Fund Committees and other Community-based programmes in raising public awareness and participation in waste management.

“To control the generation of waste, we shall also formulate and put into action operational guidelines to support separation of waste at source in all parts of the city. To enhance the recovery of waste, we shall form and put into use formal structures for its engagement with community groups and other stakeholders in waste management and specifically those who recycle and re-use waste,” Sonko said.
