  1. Municipal solid waste management in the city of Yaounde has been carried out by the HYSACAM company for more than 25 years now ( since the early 90s).
    Though initially HYSACAM company did a marvelous job cleaning the capital city of Yaounde, of late, heaps of uncollected waste had been frequently found abandoned along the streets of Yaounde.In defense, HYSACAM complains that non respect of time of payment of bills and non respect of the contract by the city council has be en the main reason why they can’t effectively carry out their duties of keeping the Yaounde city clean all the time. Unfortunately, this trend is not been noticed in Yaounde only but to other cities where waste management has been outsourced to HYSACAM.
    I believe the coming in of a new waste management company in Yaounde and Cameroon as a whole will break the monopoly enjoyed by HYSACAM in Cameroon to the benefit of our environment
