The double axial trucks have capacity on compacted volume of 20 cubic metres which translates into servicing 3000 households within its service area.
Managing Director of Jekora Ventures Limited, Ing. Immanuel Nartey- Tokoli presented the tracts to the AMA for inspection when he led a delegation from the city of Blantyre in Malawi who are on a working visit to Accra to learn about waste management policies implemented by the Assembly.
He noted the equipment would boost quick collection of refuse within the Osu Klotey sub metro comprising communities such as Ridge, Osu, Adabraka, Asylum Down and parts of Tudu.
According to him, as part of efforts to replenish old equipment the two trucks were brought in to augment the company’s technical fleets in order to improve service delivery to some 24000 households within the Osu Klotey sub metro.
“The two trucks, will help us provide quality service to additional 3000 households within the Osu Klotey sub metro where AMA has mandated us to work," he said.
The Chief Executive Office of AMA Hon Mohammed Adjei Sowah who inspected the trucks commended Jekora for investing in equipment to help deal with sanitation within the metropolis.
The introduction of the modern equipment he noted would go a long way to reduce the turnaround time in the collection of refuse in the city and urged other private waste management companies servicing the metropolis to invest in such equipment to help make Accra clean.
