Meru: Give dustbin before getting business license

19 November 2012, 15:50 Kelvin Mureithi

Every business must supply dustbins before getting a license to operate in Meru Town from next year.

Speaking to the media in his office on Monday, the Meru municipal mayor Cllr. John Mwalimu said that there is an inadequacy of dustbins in the town, blaming it on the business operators.

Mwalimu said that it is the responsibility of the business operators to offer dustbins, and their failure to do so has caused littering of the city as people have nowhere to throw litter.

It is out of this reason that the council has taken the step of ensuring that each and every business has provided dustbins before getting a license to operate.

He said the council had distributed enough dustbins in the year 2008, but they had all been stolen and sold as scrap metal by the end of 2009.

He observed that in the effort to keep the town clean, the council has hired a truck worth KES 7.9M to collect garbage around the town.

The mayor pointed out that the council is working hard to ensure that Meru Town is among the cleanest and the most beautiful towns in the country, and urged people to dispose off litter in proper way.
