The new fleets
Zoomlion Volta, a subsidiary of indigenous  waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana Ltd has presented new fleet of trucks and equipment to 20 Municipal and district assemblies in the  region.
The equipment consisting of  20 trucks, 104 motor tricycles and 90 communal waste containers, is augment  the  ones already being used by the assemblies to effectively manage waste in their jurisdictions. 
Speaking  after a brief handing over  ceremony in Ho last Wednesday , Mr. Evans Ewudzie Arthur, General manager of Zoomlion Volta said the retooling is part of an existing waste management arrangement  between the company and the assemblies. He said though, each of the 25 assemblies in the region presently has 2 trucks and 11 communal containers in addition to tricycles, some of the equipment are aging, hence the new ones.

“We already have an arrangement with all the assemblies when it comes to management of waste their areas. Based on that, we provide them with equipment and other waste management services. But we have realized that, the trucks and other equipment in use now have reach their 5 years life span and there is the need to replace them,” he stated. 
Mr. Arthur also noted  that, the remaining five district assemblies will receive their equipment from a consignment that the company is expected to take  delivery of.
