The exercise covered all the Madina Lorry Stations, the Madina Central Market area, North Legon, Baba-Yara, Pantang  and its environs, saw the desilting of gutters, weeding of overgrown weeds and with the assistance of the Alliance Waste Compaction truck and a tipper truck,  all the waste materials were carted away.
 
Mr. Joseph Quacoe, the Head of Environmental Health Management Unit of LaNMMA said the flash point for the cleanup exercise was the Atomic Junction area to the Ritz Junction.
 
Speaking on the exercise, Mr. Quacoe said despite public announcements "our people were apathetic and therefore we needed to enforce the National Sanitation Laws to serve as a deterrent" and described the attendance as very poor.

Alhaji Saaka Dramani, the Co-ordinating Director of LaNMMA, who took part in the exercise, later inspected the whole cleanup exercise.
