The Head of Geocycle, Lafarge Africa Plc, Daniel Adedokun remarked: “At Lafarge, our commitment to sustainability is unwavering. We drive a circular economy across everything we do, to keep materials in use for as long as possible, giving them a second life and a third and a fourth and using only what is needed to preserve nature.

Improving waste collection is fundamental to advancing the circular economy and to reducing marine litter.”

The Commercial Manager, Geocycle, Temitope Dosumu during the cleanup event said: “The purpose of today’s cleaning event is to sensitize people within Bariga community and its environs on the importance of sorting waste from source and cleaning up the environment and streets. This will go a long way to reduce the volume of waste that goes to the dump sites and drainages and will prevent poor waste management. The World Clean Up Day is a reminder that we all have a part to play in attaining a zero-waste future.”
