Ghana has been identified as one of three Sub-Saharan African countries where people dump waste which contains ozone depleting substances.

About 30% of used electrical goods are brought into the country daily.

This came up at a West African Regional workshop organised by the Environmental Protection Agency in Accra to educate the Customs Division of the GRA on how to identify and check substances which deplete the environment.

Speaking at the workshop, the Deputy Executive Director at the Environmental Protection Agency, Ebenezer Appah-Sarpong said the EPA as a frontline organisation will ensure that imported items do not contain ozone depleting substances which are harmful to health.
