Crackdown on littering at beaches, barbecue sites

*************************************************



The Leisure and Cultural Services Department has implemented strict measures to stamp out littering at its beaches and barbecue areas.

A spokesman for the department said today (June 20) that in support of the Government's territory-wide anti-littering efforts, staff would take stringent enforcement action against those who littered at the department's venues and beaches, including barbecue areas.

"In addition to daily regular inspections by our venue staff, we have set up special patrols to increase the frequency of inspections and to conduct anti-littering raids during weekends and public holidays," the spokesman said.

"We will not tolerate litterbugs and are determined to prosecute anyone found littering at venues, beaches and barbecue sites."

Meanwhile, the department will mount a special anti-littering operation tomorrow (June 21) evening with Police assistance at Deep Water Bay Beach in the Southern District. Anti-littering efforts at all other beaches will also be stepped up.

"We appeal for public co-operation to keep our beaches clean and tidy," the spokesman said. "All beach-goers should clean up before leaving, take away their litter and put it in the bins.

"It is everyone's civic responsibility to keep the environment clean and to be considerate of others while enjoying our public facilities."

The department has put up notices and banners and makes regular announcements to remind users not to litter.

"We believe that with the co-operation of the public and the efforts of our staff, we can keep our recreational venues hygienic and in good order," the spokesman said.
