Upon persistent complains about the health hazards of heaped of refuse at the Akotomorease dumping site near the Central Market, the Birim Central Municipal Assembly sought the services of a bulldozer and low bed truck to do the evacuation of refuse at the above stated site on the 10th and 11th of September, 2022.

The evacuation exercise became necessary due to the following reasons:

1. The heap of refuse was serving as a breeding place for mosquitoes and the common houseflies.

2. The ground was being used for open defecation.

3. The strong stench that emanate from the refuse dump affects traders at the market and the immediate neighbours of the environment.

The above stated public health issues compelled the Assembly to do the evacuation. In conclusion, the heap of refuse was pushed, spread, levelled and compacted. The entire site was also disinfected by the spraying gang of Zoomlion immediately after the exercise.
