Paynesville, – The Monrovia City Corporation through its Chesemanburg Landfill Urban Sanitation Project (CLUS) Project Implementation Unit (PIU) on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Paynesville City Hall, donated several chemical materials to the Management of Paynesville City Corporation (PCC), a fulfillment of CLUS Project Commitment to give support to the Paynesville City Cooperation (PCC) for Solid Waste Management.
