The mayor of Kanifing Municipal Council, Talib Ahmed Bensouda has said that they are conducting a feasibility study funded by UNDP over Bakoteh dumpsite, signaling that they will decide to either go with composing waste to energy or engineer land fill.

However, he was quick to add that they are yet to decide on which method to take but are working with partners.

Mayor Bensouda made these remarks last Friday at KMC Complex during the presentation of 100 waste bins to schools, hospitals and religious places. The bins and some medical supplies due to be received this week are donations to the council by the city of Madison in U.S.A. following Mayor Bensouda’s visit last October.

Lord Mayor Bensouda described Bakoteh dumpsite as a big problem but said they are committed to securing a fence for it as well as engaging partners on which method to take.

He also described waste management as one of the biggest problems for The Gambia, but noted that KMC will take the lead with regard to waste management.

He said that the council is also challenged with indiscriminate littering, illegal dumping, waste collection and waste processing but are taking concrete steps to mitigate them this year.

On illegal dumping, he said, they have cleared over 60 of them and are currently installing 500 street bins to address littering.

According to him, they are also due to commence drain cleaning over the weekend to ensure limited flooding during the rainy season.

In the coming weeks, he said, councilors of various wards will lead the delegation to ensure beneficiaries receive waste bins.

However, he said, receiving the bins is one thing but usage and maintenance is another; and therefore urged recipients to manage them well to ensure they last long.

For schools, he said this is an opportunity for them to teach children about waste management to ensure Gambia becomes a very clean nation as they grow up.
