The Environmental Health and Sanitation Task Force of La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Assembly (LaNMMA) and the Police have arrested 21 persons who dumped refuse indiscriminately along the Madina-Adenta Highway.

Four people were also arrested for defecating openly.

The team carried out the operations on the night of Thursday, December 24 and those arrested were asked to pay a fine of GH¢ 100.00 each.

Mr Joseph Quacoe, the Head of Sanitation Unit of LaNMMA said the purpose of the exercise was to prevent illegal dumping of refuse during the Christmas festivities.

He therefore appealed to the inhabitants of Madina to deposit their waste with accredited waste management contractors.

Mr Quacoe also asked traders to dump their waste at the approved dumping sites to help keep the municipality clean.
