The responsible and hardworking Students’ Union Government has, with the help of Moyamba District Council, received two garbage dumpsters to ensure clean, conducive, and breathtaking campus environment. Yearly, the world produces 381 million tonnes of plastic waste – thus affecting our environment, habitats, and the planet. Njala campus, one of the largest university campuses in Sierra Leone, has thousands of students staying in the campus parameters – thus enabling massive littering on the campus premises – which in turn gives the campus unfashionable looks. The Students’ Union Government, as a listening and proactive government, saw the need for garbage dumpsters to be placed on campus.
The two garbage dumpsters were given by the Moyamba District Council to the Students’ Union Government as a result of the positive impact the Students’ Union Government under the leadership of President Mohamed Alex Koroma has shown. The Chairman of the Moyamba District Council, Joseph Benedict Mbogba, lead a team from the council and presented the dumpsters to the Students’ Union Government. Speaking to the Students’ Union Government, Mr Mbogba said the council is open and ready to help the government in ensuring safe and clean garbage collection on campus. Mr Mbogba also promised the government that the council won’t stop there. The council will support the government with at least one waste vehicle for easy and swift garbage collection and dumping. The president of the Students’ Union Government also expressed his thanks and gratitude to the council and assures the council of quality management of the dumpsters.
The two garbage dumpsters were allocated in two different locations on campus – one in Block G and the other close to the female hostels (Quadrangle and Tourist). The two garbage dumpsters will serve hundreds of students and minimize plastic waste on campus.
