The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Kofi Adda has stated placing a ban on the use of plastics is an option being considered by government to help address the sanitation challenges facing the country.

According to him, the option is one clear way of making the environment cleaner but was quick to add that the country is being careful to avoid loss of jobs as a result.
The Minister who is also the Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central noted that the general indiscipline in the country is not helping efforts to curb the sanitation challenge.

He called for attitudinal change to make Ghana clean.

Mr Kofi Adda also complained that effective structures are not in place to encourage proper segregation of waste along the value chain.

He noted due to the absence of structures if waste is segregated at home or offices, waste collectors ended up bulking all together when they go round collecting waste.

This he said renders the segregation efforts useless. The Minister assured of his outfits determination to fix the situation.
