Environmental group cleans Kaneshie market


Accra, May 16, GNA - Land life Ghana, an Accra-based environmental group on Saturday undertook a four-hour clean up exercise at the frontage of the Kaneshie market complex to improve sanitation in the area.

Mr Anthony Mensah, Executive chairman of the group, said the motive behind the clean up was to check the indiscriminate dumping of waste in the locality, as part of a general campaign to keep the market clean. He said the exercise would be extended to other marketplaces, particularly at Agbogbloshie, Makola, Abeka, Mallam Atta.

Mr Mensah advised the traders to cease indiscriminate dumping of refuse on the ground. Mr Henry Mills, Executive Director and Administrator of Safe Haven Rehabilitation Centre, said a refuse collecting company had been contracted to collect refuse from the market frequently.
