Tricycle Rider Caught illegally Dumping Refuses On Ceremonial Road [Pictures+Video]
Heaps of refuse continue to mount up on sections of road shoulders in many areas of the country, especially in Accra and Kumasi, a situation that has become a source of worry to many.
This is in spite of the number of warnings and arrests made by city authorities over the years.
Tricycle riders who collect and pack the refuse for dumping at designated refuse dumps have been flagged as the culprits of this indiscriminate act of not reaching their destination but choose to dump on road shoulders.
Caught in the act in Kumasi
In the Garden City of Kumasi on Monday afternoon [January 25, 2021], a resident by name Huny, caught a tricycle rider and his assistant dumping refuse at Danyame, in the curve near the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (ARCC) offices on the road to the State Experimental Primary School.
Huny told Graphic Online that the practice has been ongoing for sometime now and he has had to pay money to the waste management department of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) for them to collect the refuse and clean up the area anytime it happens.
Thankfully, he chanced on the two culprits on Monday afternoon, filmed and confronted them before he alerted police officers who were on duty at the nearby Regional Coordinating Council security post for them to order them to collect the refuse.
