All About CleanWarri.

Introduction.
Warri gives not just to it’s residents and the nation so much, but in return, she’s been neglected and turning into one of the dirtiest cities in Africa. We generate thousand tonnes of garbage daily, some of which are irresponsibly dumped on the streets, roads and the limited water drainage systems.  We have turned roads to dumpsite, and every day the piles keeps increasing, defacing the city, spreading disease and despair. This is a huge problem, should we wait till we cannot resolve it, or transfer to the next generation?

We are responsible for this sorry state of our city. We roll down the windows of our cars and carelessly toss drink cans, food packets, cigarettes and whatever not, onto the road. We spit and freely eliminate urine on walls and at all corners.

CleanWarri wants to put an end to this; together we can protect and make our City, Beautiful, Clean and Healthy.

About Us.
On the 3rd  December 2016, a  group of selfless individuals mostly young and under 40 converged at Afe Studio with one purpose in pursuit –A BETTER WARRI.
They started out discussing the challenges that plagues the reputation and progress of Warri and her environs.
After many deliberations, the team christened a project everyone thought was a priority to the city –
#CLEANWARRI, under the given mandate of “My City, My Responsibility”. #CleanWarri hopes to achieve its vision by Educating,  Influencing, Beautifying, Cleaning,  make Green, Sustainable and also to Involve and Collaborate with residents and organisations, and ensure that Sanitation, Hygiene and Climate standards in Warri aligns with global standards and practices.
Steered by The New Warri Group, since its creation, this movement has metamorphosed into an organisation tasked with the responsibility of making and keeping this city Clean, beautiful, green and healthy with zero waste.


What We Do?
CleanWarri is not just about cleaning up roads, roundabouts, and streets but about helping to develop and encourage wholelistic programs and initiatives that will deliver a clean, beautiful and healthy lifestyle across the city. This will include specific objectives such as beautification of strategic locations around the city, citywide clean up operations, develop mini parks, organising waste conferences, helping to reduce crime, job creation, construction of toilets in schools and communities, better waste management system and practices and aggressive environmental awareness and educational campaign and empowering residents with adequate information about the danger of this challenge and their roles in tackling this epidemic.
