The order by the Lagos State House of Assembly issued to the Private Sector Partnership (PSP) operators to resume their duties of refuse collection and disposal has been responded to in a statement released on Thursday by Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, the waste management utility company contracted by the Lagos State Government to provide residential solid waste management collection services across the State.
The House of Assembly had executed an order to local government chairmen informing them to notify the PSP operators within their purview to resume the collection and disposal of refuse across the metropolis.
The statement signed by the CEO of the group, John Irvine said, “We have been made aware of statements being attributed to the Lagos State House of Assembly concerning cancellation of our service contract with the Lagos State Government.
“We would like to believe that there is some misinterpretation of the statements being circulated, despite our continued efforts in meeting the performance matrices of our valid and subsisting contract.
“We will nonetheless continue to fulfil the terms of our service contract in the face of a sustained negative sponsored media campaign, as well as persistent and systematic sabotage of our efforts and our assets.
“We remain open to dialogue, levelling the competitive playing field and participating in a more inclusive process with all stakeholders in the environment”.
