Following the circulation on social media of a video clip showing vehicle registration number NU 4099 dumping solid waste on an undesignated open ground near Likuni roundabout on Friday morning of 31 July 2020, the Lilongwe City Council tracked the owner of the vehicle. He has been fined K200,000 and has been deregistered as a private waste operator by the Council.
The Lilongwe City Council appeals to all private waste operators and the general public to desist from illegal dumping of waste on any open land. Let us work together to keep our surroundings and our city clean and green.
The Lilongwe City Council would like to thank the whistleblower on this incident for being patriotic to expose the unbecoming practice.
