Bushenyi-Ishaka Municipality introduces new garbage policy
Authorities in Bushenyi-Ishaka municipality have implored citizens to embrace the new municipal garbage policy to improve on area sanitation.
Speaking to the division’s executive and health inspectors across the municipality , Richard Byaruhanga, the Bushenyi-Ishaka municipality mayor noted that they bench marked this policy from neighboring cities where tendering helped a lot in reducing garbage littering in the town.
Byaruhanga added that Garbage collection consumes 40% of their local revenue every financial year and appealed to stakeholders to take up the policy and ensure sensitization of masses to ensure the service providers are paid their due charges.
He however asked technical staff not to use a lot of force while implementing this new policy and only embark on sensitization since the policy is new.
However health inspectors stressed that they are facing challenges of people sweeping and dumping the garbage to drainage channels which they appealed for enforcement to intervene especially in Ishaka town.
