Christian Council Urges Gov’t To Make Money From Waste


The Christian council of Ghana has resolved to support the Local Government Ministry in its Environmental Sanitation Efforts.

The move follows the recent cholera pandemic that has claimed over a hundred lives across the country.

The situation which has become an annual ritual has been widely attributed to the filth and insanitary conditions in the country.

In an effort to curb this trend, the Christian council has accepted an invitation to use its platform to champion education on environmental cleanliness across the country.

Its Executive Secretary, Rev Dr Opuni Frimpong told Ultimate Radio, the council expects the local government ministry to in turn, implement policies that will foster better waste management in the country.

He emphasized that government had to move the country towards a position where Ghana can make money from its waste as pertains in other countries.

Rev Dr. Opuni Frimpong emphasized that the process could only start if Ghanaians imbibe the habit of separating the waste they generate.

He said this would help recyclers turn some biodegradable waste into fertilizer and other compost materials for industry.
