Monrovia – The Chairman of the Legislative Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Caucus, Grand Bassa County Senator Jonathan Kaipay has called for the passage of the National Solid Waste Management Policy into law. Director for the Solid Waste Management Department at the MCC, the policy seeks to obligate residents to pay for their waste and gives various city governments the legal rights in collecting solid waste intakes. Speaking further, the WASH Commission boss lauded the government for the support including the passage of the Act establishing the Wash Commission and subsequent budgetary allocation and provision of office space. He revealed that because the act establishing the WASH Commission did not repeal the function of some entities regulating WASH activities, the commission is still sharing its tasks with them. The meeting was attended by major stakeholders of the WASH sector including the Legislative WASH Caucus of Liberia, the WASH Commission, Monrovia City Corporation and other partners including WaterAid Liberia and UNDP.
