In a statement issued in Lusaka on Wednesday, Council Public Relations Officer, Annedy Longwe, said each bin cost K1,450, totaling K58,000, carefully selected to address the district’s specific needs.

“This reiterates the local government’s commitment to address environmental issues through improved community sensitization on the significance of environmental care, maintenance and sustainability, in the wake of climate change,” Longwe said.

She added that the bins would serve as a constant reminder to the community to dispose of waste responsibly and promote a culture of environmental awareness.

“The Council wishes to use community sensitization and involvement to cultivate an environmentally-conscious culture, in line with national and regional goals for sustainable development and public health,” Longwe said.
