Gov't To Decentralize Operations In Waste Management- Lands Minister

The monopoly of Zoomlion in waste management will soon be over. This is because the government will soon regionalize the operations of waste management in the country.

The move, he said, is among many others aimed at breaking the monopoly of Zoomlion Company Ltd in waste management in the country.

The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, John Amewu said this at a victory and dinner event organised by the New Patriotic Party, (NPP) Chapter in Perth Australian where the minister attended an African Mining Conference.

"It is a fact that Zoomlion became a monopoly in the country over a long period of time. But don't forget that he [founder of Zoomlion Ghana, Joseph Siaw Agyapong was the first person to see potential where nobody wants to go and he decided to go there so he has expanded beyond any imagination.”

"But what government is doing now is to regionalize the operation of waste management," he said.

Mr. Amewu said the rationalization process will promote healthy competition in the sector.
