Oyo State capital – Ibadan can rightly be acclaimed as the second most developed city in south western Nigeria after Lagos but unfortunately, the state of hygiene seen around the city can be termed as worrisome. CleanEdge Solutions initiative in partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Development (CESDEV) and Nigerian Network of Non-Governmental Organizations intends to solve these challenges by utilizing the 3Rs of waste management (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). We hope to address waste issues through our lines of actions: Waste Education, Waste Collection and Waste House.

In the last couple of months, we have been thoroughly involved in waste education exercise across the state which we called “Save the Environment Campaign” and we believe the broad scope of waste management requires the involvement of almost all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), both nationally, sub-nationally and at local government levels. It is to this end that CleanEdge Solution as one of its mandate presents the Annual Summit on Waste Management in Oyo State.

Oyo State Waste Management Summit 2018 is designed to bring about 250 stakeholders together to provide solutions to menace of waste management problems in Oyo State. The summit will be covered by Prints media (Tribune, Vanguard and BluePrints Newspaper), Broadcast Media (BCOS, Splash FM and Diamond FM), and online media (educeleb, DevcomNigeria, The Transverse, Africannews, The Nigeria Focus,  The News Cable etc.)
