The Cameroonian Hygiene and Health Company (Hysacam) gave the reasons behind the recent disruptions in the waste collection observed by households. In a memo released this week, the company blamed "recurring shortages of fuel to run its waste collection vehicles."
Hysacam, however, reassured its clients that an agreement is being negotiated with the Cameroonian Oil Depot Company to ensure the availability of fuel for its fleet. "Deliveries have been effective since March 13 and arrangements are being made for the situation to return to normal in the next few days,” the company said.
Let’s note that residents of the cities of Yaoundé and Douala have been complaining for several weeks about the accumulation of waste that Hysacam is supposed to collect. To relieve the company and make the waste collection sector more dynamic, the government has already opened the market to other investors.
