National Clean-Up Campaign heads to the Borough of Chaguanas
February 2, 2017: Clean-up exercises continue as the National Clean-Up Campaign makes its way to the Borough of Chaguanas on Saturday 4th February, 2017. Last weekend, the clean-up campaign received an overwhelming response from the residents of the San Juan/Laventille region as they assisted private contractors with loading trucks with debris, clearing overgrown lots and disposing of white and bulk waste.
Minister Kazim Hosein commended corporate partners, residents and volunteer groups such as MiLat, MyPart, and scavenging companies in the San Juan/Laventille region for their cooperation in teaming up to clean up. Special mention was made by Minister Hosein of the dedicated services provided by CEPEP and the unreserved efforts from volunteers, contractors and key stakeholders.
He further encouraged the people of Chaguanas to follow in this spirit of volunteerism by saying “We continue our call for all volunteers, those with equipment such as backhoes, dump trucks, skid steer loaders, tractors and excavators to join efforts by assisting corporate volunteers in loading trucks with bulk and white waste, cutting overgrown lots, removing derelict vehicles, demolishing dilapidated structures, and taking down illegal signage as we restore the aesthetic pride of our country”
The National Clean-Up Campaign moves into the Borough of Chaguanas and will continue southward to the Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo region. Chaguanas residents are kindly asked to put out bulk/white waste, old tyres and other items for collection on Friday 3rd February, 2017.
The Borough of Chaguanas’ Launch Ceremony will take place at Narsaloo Ramaya Road on Saturday 4th February at 8:30am.
