The District Environmental Health Department of Zoolion in the Upper West Akim District and DCE Mr. Eugene Sackey has appealed to residents to stop dumping refuse at the Adeiso lorry park.
The DCE particularly bemoaned the situation saying, it poses a threat to the health of the people living in the area.
He warned that persons who caught would be prosecuted.
The DCE was not happy residents have refused to dump their refuse at designated locations and rather doing so at the lorry park.
He gave the caution when the waste management company held a discussion with traders and residents in the area.
On his part, the District Director for Zoomlion, Mr. Koomson, noted that the situation was unhygienic.
He advised residents to be responsible and stop the unlawful act.
