THE beauty and cleanliness of the city lies in our hands, a youth leader says.
Simon Tomasusu, of the Secretariat of Pacific Community (SPC) supported [email protected], highlighted this at the end of their two weeks of clean-up of the city, Friday.
“Looking after and cleaning up the city is everybody’s business,” Mr Tomasusu stated.
“We are now completing our two weeks of campaign against rubbish in Honiara starting last week, but as I have said, looking after the city is everyone’s responsibility,” he added.
Taiwanese Embassy in Honiara supported the clean-up.
Mr Tomasusu said the need to maintain the general cleanliness of the city is becoming urgent now that more and more tourists are visiting Honiara.
“Let’s make Honiara one of the cleanest places in the Pacific,” Mr Tomasusu stated.
Another [email protected] member, Anna Koni, added it is sad that dirt in the capital is caused by human beings.
“The main dirt here is plastics and I want to appeal to the good citizens of this country to be responsible by putting your trash in the right place,” Ms Koni said.
“We have rubbish bins along the street therefore throw your rubbishes in those bins so that we can keep our city clean.”
With the campaign and clean-up down in the last two weeks, [email protected] appeals to Honiara residents to keep the city clean and tidy.
“Let us carry the mindset to keep our town clean and tidy everyday,” Mr Tomasusu said.
