Sanitation management in Ghana is a major problem that must be handled collectively by all stakeholders.
The Chiefs and leaders of Achiase Community in Ejisu approached me with a major sanitation issue of a refuse dump getting out of control and affecting the health of the community. The site has been used as refuse dump for over 40 years and was in centre of the town.
The best way to handle refuse in our communities is to establish recycling compost plants in every district or Municipal assembly with strict rules for enforcement but in the absence of that we agreed to dig a big pit and push the refuse inside for natural composting, after while it will be reused as fertilisation.
The community led by the Queen Mother and the Assemblyman were grateful for this intervention.
The project was funded 100% by the private sector. Thanks to Sogood Contractors and other members of Ejisu club 100 for their benevolence.
