Visionscape positions TLS for waste efficiency
Visionscape Sanitation Solutions (VSS) is at the forefront of tackling the rising scourge of plastics as transfer loading stations (TLS) across the state , which it has taken concession and management of, are at almost completion stage. The stations will serve as sorting centers for its recycling programme. They are located in Agege, Oshodi and Lagos Island.
According to the firm, each TLS is strategically located to address collection efficiency and increase the trips for waste collection. For instance, while the Agege and Lagos Island stations will handle only solid waste, the Oshodi station will cater to medical and hazardous ones.
Its Chief Executive Officer, John Irvine, said the TLS will also serve as the point of sorting and bundling of plastic waste, separating them from the bio-degradable materials, which end up in the landfill.
“The Lagos market is highly dependent on plastic materials. Without adequate disposal processes, the waste materials end up polluting the earth, the oceans and ultimately, affecting human health. Improving the process of sorting and packaging at these transfer loading stations makes it easier for us to recover materials that would have caused pollution,” Irvine said.
