Considering the giant stride recorded by Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA,  in the  past years in keeping Lagos clean, the Realcross Interactional, a non-government  organization has concluded plans to bestow Best Environmental Agency award on LAWMA.

The event will take place on Thursday, 7 December  as part of  the maiden edition of Real  Awards 2010 with the theme, “Building A Better Nigeria”.

This was disclosed by the coordinator of the organization, Barrister Titilayo Olagundoye,  while speaking with newsmen about the event.

She explained that “Realcross has watched with keen interest the activities of all  environment agencies across the 36 states of the federation and got to know that LAWMA  stands out compared to all of them.”

She pointed out that, apart from cleaning Lagos State, several programmes have been  carried out by LAWMA. These include capacity building programme, incentives to encourage  their staff, the highway managers, enlightment programme to sensitize the masses on the  need to keep their environment clean so as to have healthy life, etc.

She maintained that all these and other criteria informed the decision of Realcross to  give the award to LAWMA.
