Engineers at the Mudor Waste Water Treatment Plant have disclosed that foreign materials including condoms, sanitary pads and remains of aborted babies are damaging their machines.

Though the plant is to process liquid waste, faecal matter collected is gaining notoriety for containing other solid waste materials, which are damaging the machines.

The plant is currently being operated by Sewerage Systems Ghana Limited (SSGL) at Lavender Hill, near James Town in Accra.

 

SSGL is a subsidiary of the Jospong Group of Companies which collects and treats faecal matter generated within the nation’s capital.
