Residents and vendors in the popular Obiagu Street have blamed the Enugu State Waste Management Over poor waste management in the area.

They made this known when Newslive reporters visited one of the refuse dump cites in the area to ascertain the level of waste management.

A newspaper seller, Mrs. Maurine Onuorah said that the Refuse dump has been a great to her health and her business adding that the stench from the refuse are provoking.

"The Refuse bins provided by ESWAMA are filled up and as a result, residents in the area have turned the ground into refuse bins" she said.

According to Onuorah ESWAMA has not been active in the discharge of its duties ever since the present government came into power.

"Under the Sullivan administration, ESWAMA was always punctual. As soon as the refuse bins are filled up, they come and clear them" she said".

She therefore advised the state government to constitute a team of individuals who will always go around to check recuse dump cites in the state in order to make the environment conducive.

A resident in the area, mrs. Nkechi Amaechi said that the stench coming from the waste is capable of causing sickness.

"If the government does not have enough people to work, it should employ us so we can help in keeping the environment clean" she said.
