Zoomlion advocates “1bin for 1household” at Tamale Trade Expo


Zoomlion Ghana Limited has urged the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to lead the charge for households in the country to get waste bins to help effectively collect waste.

The Director of Communications and Corporate Affairs of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mrs Emma Akyea-Boakye, made the appeal at the 24th Ghana International Trade Fair organised in Tamale. She stated that there are huge volumes of uncollected waste in the system which these waste bins can help collect.

She said these uncollected wastes end up at unauthorised places such as drains, streets, public parks, among others, saying this is a public health concern considering the onset of the rains.

Mrs Akyea-Boakye expressed optimism that the waste bin distribution project is very critical in sustaining Ghana’s gains in ensuring that the country becomes one of the cleanest in the sub-region.



Meanwhile, the company had the opportunity to exhibit its integrated waste management solutions services and other innovative products.

Patrons who visited the Zoomlion Ghana Limited’s stand were impressed with the various state-of-the-art infrastructure, integrated recycling and composting plants being established to help convert waste into compost to feed the agriculture sector.

The 11-day fair, which was on the theme “Value Addition, trading globally”, attracted over 600 exhibitors from Ghana, the sub-region, Madagascar, India, Guinea, Italy, Angola, Gambia among others.

The fair was aimed at promoting value-added products, connecting local industries to international partners, as well as encouraging people to patronise Made-in-Ghana products.
