LASG cracks down on single-use plastics, seizes tonnes of Styrofoam in Lagos Island  

The Lagos State Government recently intensified its environmental crackdown by confiscating tonnes of Styrofoam packs in Lagos Island’s Bombata area, aligning with its policy to phase out single-use plastics statewide.  


This significant seizure was announced by Tokunbo Wahab, the state’s Commissioner of Environment and Water Resources, in a post on his official X account.  


The operation was a collaborative effort involving personnel from the Lagos State Environmental Health Services, Lagos State Neighbourhood Watch, the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps (KAI), and other related agencies.
