Tebel Ghana Limited, a specialist in waste management has partnered with the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) to fumigate and desilt the 80 acres of land space and gutters of the former scrapyard at Agbogbloshie in Accra.

The exercise was to eradicate the pests, insects, and rodents that had engulfed the property and affected neighboring business establishments and households located within the enclave.

The scrapyard was on the banks of the Korle Lagoon of the Odaw River and had been mostly an onion market and an automobile and electronic hub.

As part of the “Let’s Make Accra Work” campaign initiated by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr. Henry Quartey to improve living and business conditions in the nation’s capital, the scrap yard and onion market were demolished on Thursday, July 1, 2021.

Madam Edem Makumafor, the Public Relations Officer of Tebel Ghana Limited said the exercise which started on Wednesday was expected to be completed in three days to make Accra clean and habitable for everyone.

‘‘We believe in the ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ agenda which was also to help reduce the recurrences of floods in our nation’s capital and to boost tourism,’’ she said.

Madam Makumafor said, as part of the exercise, they would fumigate, fog, and mist blow the land, collect and dispose of refuse, and desilt gutters of the property.

Tebel Ghana Limited is committed to ensuring environmentally responsible recycling practices, educating the public on standard or preferred waste management practices, and contributing to the global effort to reduce the effects of e-waste, in line with commitments made by the country.

The company is also specialized in fumigation and disinfection services and its main objective is to help shift people’s views about waste and rather appreciate its benefits and their operations span from the collection, treatment, recycling, and disposal.
