If you dump refuse indiscriminately in Uyo, you will be arrested
By Emma Akpabio
In line with Akwa Ibom State Environmental Protection and Waste Manage Law Cap 47, 2000, the task force of the Agency Tuesday, apprehended a victim who disposed refuse at prohibited hours along Aka Nnung Udoe road within Uyo metropolis and handed him over to men of Nigerian Police force for prosecution.
This serves as a deterrent to other citizens and Uyo residents planning to dump refuse at illegal dump points and prohibited hours.
Recall that the Board Chairman, Hon Prince Ikim has issued several warnings against such act. Road transporters are advised to have waste baskets in their vehicles while Members of the public have been informed to always bag and dump their Waste at Government approved dump points between 6pm and 6am.
The Environmental Protection and Waste Management Agency vows to make all defaulters face full weight of the Law.
