Leisure and Cultural Services gets tough on littering

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



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

A spokesman for the department said today (June 27) 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 recreational venues, especially beaches and 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 at beaches and barbecue areas," the spokesman said.

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

"We appeal for public co-operation to keep our recreational venues clean and tidy," the spokesman said. "All users of recreational venues and beach-goers should clean up before leaving, taking away their litter or putting it in 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 made regular announcements at all venues to remind users to maintain a clean environment.

"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.
