Over One thousand residents of Ogun State have benefited from the distribution of Reusable items generated by the government through its Renew and Reuse Waste Agenda. 

The initiative which encouraged residents to donate items that were no longer of use to them but still in good condition to be used by others had enabled the government to assist the beneficiaries with items such as clothes, shoes, toys and kitchen utensils.  

During the distribution exercise at the Abeokuta North Local Government Secretariat, Akomoje, the Commissioner for Environment, Mr Ola Oresanya and his colleague in the Ministry of  Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Ms Motunrayo Adeleye said the gesture was part of the government’s commitment to making the festive season memorable for the people. 

The Commissioners explained that the donated items had passed through the state government’s renewal processes and were certified fit for usage before being offered to the beneficiaries, under the 

Renew and Reuse Waste Agenda which was launched in December, last year. 

They maintained that the gesture would help as palliatives to reduce the harsh effects of the nation’s economic situation on the beneficiaries while commending those who donated the items for being their brothers’ keepers at this auspicious time.

They gave the assurance that the distribution exercise would continue across the remaining nineteen local government areas, adding that more resources would also be generated from individuals, groups and corporate institutions. 

The Commissioners also announced that Collection Boxes for the Reusable Items would be placed at strategic locations in different parts of the state, including the premises of religious houses, eateries and council secretariats.
