Jos — Residents of Anguwan Rogo have appealed to the Chairman, Management Committee of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau, to provide the area with dustbins and dumping grounds for refuse disposals.

The community made the plea during evacuation of refuse indiscriminately disposed by people in the area.

Shafi'u Muhammad Abdullahi, a youth leader in the community, said the area was in serious need of dumpsters and a particular place where residents of the community would be dumping refuse.

He said: "The flagrant dumping of refuse resulting in blockage of the waterways may put the community at risk of higher cases of water and airborne diseases.
