The town of Yaoundé now has a second enterprise working with the City Council to get rid of the town’s waste.
The enterprise, THYCLOF on January 13, 2023, presented to the City Mayor, seven new trucks purchased for the activity.
“We have been around for just a few months so we are taking it progressively and rationally. It is for this reason that we found it necessary to increase our stock. We had about five on the field and now, seven more have been added,” explained THYCLOF Director of Financial Affairs, Mvondo Onana Charles.
“Seven more,” he added, “arrive in a few weeks. Truly, Yaoundé III is bound to become a very neat town and a reference point.”
The enterprise is expected to work principally in the Yaoundé III subdivision, given the load of work the current enterprise, HYSACAM is charged with.
Inspecting THYCLOF’s newly purchased trucks, the City Mayor, Luc Messi Atangana noted that the enterprise is expected to compliment HYSACAM on managing the town’s waste.
“Hysacam was alone until now and was overwhelmed by the volume of work, accentuated by uncivil behavior,” he stated.
The introduction of THYCLOF yo the official, is a demonstration of the efforts of the Yaoundé City Council and its partners “to ensure our town remains clean and we solicit the understanding of our population”.
City dwellers, he cautioned, should remain aware “… that they are the ones that produce the waste and therefore have the task of managing it in a responsible way.”
Over the past weeks, multiple waste dump sites in the town have been overwhelmed with residents seeing little or nothing of HYSACAM. This, coupled with recurrent incidents of internal grievances that often groundwork, has left city dwellers dismayed for a long time now.
It is hoped the new enterprise will be provided the much-needed assistance for waste collection, transportation and of course, recycling. It’s presence which very also eradicates HYSACAM’s monopoly over the sector it is hoped, will keep the company on its feet as it seeks to meet the needs of citizens.
