Residents of New Juaben are unhappy over non-disposal of heaps of Solid Waste at various waste collection centers in the municipality due to breakdown of Waste collection Vehicles by Zoomlion Ghana Limited ,company contracted to manage waste in the municipality.
 
 
The situation which has lasted for several weeks has led to overflow of waste containers. Residents have no other choice than to dispose their waste on the ground  .These have led to littering  of solid waste in all the waste collection points  located in highly populated areas and busy business centers.
 
In other communities specifically Adweso,residents  have been compelled to engage in open dumping due to absent of waste bins.
 
 
The angry Residents fear the situation may lead to  spread of  malaria ,rodents related plague , typhoid  and dysentery  adding that their homes and offices have been already been invaded by mosquitoes and houseflies making it difficult to even prepare food or eat in the open.
 
 
Some of the angry residents on Wednesday  set fire into the piles of solid waste  at Betom  waste collection center to control the flies and stench emitting from the decomposing waste .
Assembly Member for Srodae -Akwasu Electoral Area says Zoomlion failure to dispose the waste in his densely populated market area is a big worry .
 
MCE for New Juaben ,Comfort Asante has summoned Zoomlion officials to find alternate arrangement to fix the challenge .
