You are currently viewing Access Smile Foundation has successfully installed sixty-three (63) “Concrete Waste Bins” along the main streets of Old Tafo Municipality.

This is part of the Foundation’s commitment to augmenting the Government’s efforts to curb the many problems that the country face in terms of sanitation

Why “Concrete Waste Bins”?

Concrete waste bins are durable and will withstand any weather, they are extremely heavy and therefore less easily vandalized. Concrete Waste Bins have been used in other jurisdictions and have proven to be durable and therefore very effective in waste collection.

Over the years, successive governments have made conscious efforts to provide waste bins through the MMDA’s in conjunction with waste management companies like Zoomlionand the rest.

These bins are mostly plastics that are placed in vantage points to provide easy access to curb the menace of littering. However, due to the nature of the bins (mostly plastic and movability), they do not last longer as expected.

We believe that this will go a very long way to fighting irresponsible and indiscriminate littering. As part of this project, Access Smile Foundation would in the coming weeks present the last batch of these bins to the Municipality. We encourage all the beneficiaries of these bins to take good care of them and do their best to stop people from bringing their “homemade” garbage into the bins.

We encourage all pedestrians to make use of the bins and not litter as though there are no waste bins.

Background

Access Smile Foundation is a non-governmental organization with the aim of providing the most pressing social amenities to less endowed communities and inner cities. Since its inception, Access Smile Foundation has provided free health screening for more than 1500 people in the Sekyere Afram plains District and the Sekyere East District of the Ashanti region and organized clean-up exercises in collaboration with the Ashanti Youth for Sanitation and Zoomlion within the Kumasi Metropolis. 

Aside from the above, Access Smile Foundation is also constructing a KG Block for the Dagomba D/A Primary School in the Sekyere Afram Plains District. The current structure which serves as a classroom block for the KG 1&2 (combined classroom) has become a death trap and Access Smile Foundation is building two separate blocks to bring to an end the combined classroom for the kids. In the same project, a total of about 5000 exercise books would be shared among the pupils within the Dagomba Electoral Area of the Sekyere Afram Plains District in the Ashanti Region. 

It is the aim of Access Smile Foundation to provide the whole of Kumasi Metro with these bins and spread them to the whole country. We, therefore, plead with the general public and corporate organizations who may be desirous of seeing this dream come to through to visit our website; www.accesssmilefoundation.org or send us a message on any of our social media handles; Facebook: Access Smile Foundation, Twitter: @smile_access Instagram: Access Smile Foundation and Youtube: Access Smile Foundation.
