In a remarkable display of international cooperation, the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has joined hands with the European Union, Spain, and the City of Priar in Cape Verde to launch the “Keep Kumasi Clean; Let’s Recycle” Project.

The ambitious initiative is a testament to the commitment of these partners in addressing the growing challenge of waste management and environmental sustainability in the Kumasi Metropolitan area.

The primary objective of this project, as highlighted by KMA Mayor Hon. Samuel Pyne, is to tackle the pervasive issue of waste accumulation in key areas of Kumasi, notably Adum, which serves as the Central Business Capital of the city.

To ensure compliance and effectiveness, Hon. Pyne also emphasized that there will be laws in place to penalize those who do not adhere to the project’s guidelines.

This underlines the seriousness with which the local authorities are approaching this endeavor.

The Head of the European Union which is the funder delegation to Ghana and Head of Cooperation, Mr. Massimo Mina, shed light on the broader objectives of their support.
