He said the workers included women, youths and others drawn from the 27 local government areas of the state.
He said the agency had also brought 40 compacted trucks to help in clearing waste dumps in  parts of the metropolis.
Agid urged the public to always clean their environment to control spread of diseases.
“People should always clean their environment because sanitation is next to Godliness.
“If you abuse the environment, the environment will also abuse you. People must engage in sanitation activities to safeguard the environment.”
