March 3, 2017: The National Clean-Up Campaign will continue in the city of San Fernando this weekend, kicking off with a launch ceremony at the San Fernando City Corporation’s Carib Street Complex on Saturday March 4, 2017 at 8:00 am.

This is the second time a Clean-Up Campaign of this nature has come to the city, the first also being an initiative of Minister Kazim Hosein (then Mayor of the city), which took place in November 2015. “We have been progressing throughout the country very well. San Fernando will be the sixth municipality that we clean-up and we will continue southwards and then come back up in the east. Thus far we have cleared over three thousand loads of bulk and white waste since we began in Diego Martin on the 14th of January. We have also cleared overgrown lots and roadways, removed derelict vehicles and demolished dilapidated structures.”

Minister Kazim Hosein remarked “this initiative has been extremely successful thus far mainly because of the strong spirit of volunteerism from our contractors, volunteer organizations and the participation of the residents in each municipality. We encourage this volunteerism to continue as we work together with the remaining Corporations to create cleaner, healthier and safer communities.”

Residents of the city of San Fernando are asked to put out their bulk and white waste on Friday March 3, 2017 for collection over the weekend.
