Managing Director of Zoomlion, Mrs. Gloria Opoku AntiThe Managing Director also stated some interventions Zoomlion has put in place to encourage the preservation of our environment and the planet earth largely. These according to her are environmental cleaning in all the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDs). She disclosed that Zoomlion has over 2,000 waste trucks and over 2500 tricycles across the country for the collection of waste and haulage to our recycling plants and the final disposal sites. She said the company has collaborated with successive governments over the years to plant trees to reclaim the earth to protect the earth from further depletion. "Tree planting is therefore part of our work culture because more trees means long life to the citizenry" she added. Mrs. Anti further stated the spectacular effort of Zoomlion in making Ghana reduce plastics by recycling and turning other municipal solid waste into reusable items. Mention was made of the establishment of three recycling and compost plants in Accra and Kumasi namely, Accra Compost and Recycling Plant (ACARP), Kumasi Compost and Recycling Plant (KCARP) and the Integrated Recycling and Compost Plant (IRECOP). She said these plants produces quality organic fertilizer for the agrarian community who feed Ghanaians on daily basis. Mrs. Anti disclosed that the IRECOP concept was being replicated in all sixteen regions (16) across the country which are at various stages of completion. The Managing Director said her company has even incorporated liquid waste treatment plants into these IRECOPs and that already they have Sewerage Systems Ghana Limited which receives most of the liquid waste in Accra and another call the Kumasi Waste Treatment Plant in Kumasi. Mrs. Anti said at the moment her company was implementing their One Million Bin Project The good news according to her is that as the leading waste managers, "we have established a company that produces waste bins and we have about 1 million bins for distribution. She appealed to Ghanaians to ensure that every household owns a waste bin so that their waste can be put in the bins for periodic lifting to ensure that the environment is always clean. It is our expectation as we leave here that we all are by this exercise encouraged to keep the environment clean, and the only means by which we can keep the environment clean is by subscribing to Zoomlion for a bin for our households going forward. She said the catalogue of interventions by Zoomlion as mentioned are measures which will help safeguard the environment and extend the lifespan of the people and therefore, Ghanaians should be inspired by Zoomlion's contribution and do their part by just keeping their environment clean.
