Mayor Noel Chalamanda on Wednesday (March23, 2016) received 10 waste bins from Toyota Malawi as the company’s contributions towards the Clean Blantyre initiative.
Chalamanda, in a company of his deputy Wild Ndipo and health and social Services committee chairperson Councillor Evance Taulo, thanked Toyota Malawi for the good gesture demonstrated towards the City residents.
“This is an assurance that Toyota Malawi does not only care for those who buy cars but also cares for Blantyre City residents. Blantyre City Council will walk with Toyota Malawi in ensuring that Blantyre City residents live in a clean and green environment,” said Chalamanda.
Toyota Malawi Managing Director Arvinder Reel said his company is part of the community with a role in caring for the environment.
“Toyota Malawi has at heart about the well-being of Blantyre City residents as such promoting the Green and Clean campaign is the only way to show our responsibility in taking care of the residents,” said Reel.
Toyota Malawi purchased 20 bins at a cost of K2.5 million. The other 10 have been donated to Lilongwe City.
