The Ashanti regional office of Zoomlion Ghana says it is ready to emerge as an autonomous entity within the organizational set up of the foremost Ghanaian waste management company.
Regional Manager, Stephen Gyekye-Darko says after five years of operations, the region is poised to run its activities independent of regulation from the company’s head office in Accra.
The objective, he said, is to strengthen the regional operations for effective waste management, whilst the head office assumes a supervisory role in coordination of activities.
According to him, challenges in taking delivery of logistics and other decision making processes would be addressed when the region becomes autonomous.
Zoomlion currently engages about seven thousand contract staff and over 300 core employees.
Mr. Gyekye-Darko has identified poor public attitude towards environmental sanitation as major obstacle in efforts to keep the environment clean and green.
He announced the formation of Zoom Kids Clubs in the various schools this year with the aim of targeting the children as agents of change.
He however noted public education on sanitation will not yield the desired impact if not backed by law enforcement.
