Highway Sanitation

Highway Sanitation was a unit under Waste Management Services Department before it became a department of its own last year. It commenced its operation in September 2006, with the appointment of “Litter Marshals” charged with the responsibility of cleaning the highways. The “Litter Marshals” programme was aimed to focus on where littering was problematic and challenging for LAWMA, and due to its success, a new private partnership initiative was born. Over 90 companies (private sector participant) referred to as “service providers” have registered with LAWMA to provide cleaning/sweeping services at various strategic locations (highways and streets) in the state. About 5000 workers have been employed by these companies. The service of which has been adding value to the cleanliness of Lagos State.
