He said, “at LAWMA, we recognise the critical role that communication plays in effective waste management. By introducing this additional toll-free number, we are removing barriers and making it easier for residents to report issues, request services, and stay informed about LAWMA’s activities.”

Gbadegesin stated that the 080000LAWMA line would connect callers directly with dedicated representatives, trained to address a range of waste-related concerns, adding that residents could report illegal dumping, request waste collection, inquire about PSP operations, and access information on LAWMA’s various services.
