As a result of the withdrawal, the AMA stated there are heaps of uncollected wastes dotted in some parts of Accra but the Assembly is working around the clock to bring the situation under control.
Head of Public Relations at the AMA, Gilbert Nii Ankrah in a statement signed said: “The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), wishes to inform the general public that drivers of Zoomlion Ghana Limited (Accra Zone) have withdrawn their services from the city this morning without any official notice to the Assembly.
In view of the situation, there is uncollected solid waste at various locations across the city.
“The Assembly has therefore deployed tipper trucks to collect all heaps as a temporal measure to manage the situation.
“The Assembly wishes to assure the public that it is working around the clock to bring the situation under control.”
Trucks belonging to the AMA are seen across the city in frantic efforts to collect all heaps of waste as officials work to resolve the situation.
