LCSD continues to take stringent measures to keep venues clean
*********************************************************


The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will continue to take strict measures to maintain the cleanliness of its venues and beach barbecue areas.

"We will not tolerate litterbugs and will prosecute anyone found littering at our venues," said the department's Chief Leisure Manager (Hong Kong West), Mrs Doris Fok, during a clean-up and anti-littering operation at Deep Water Bay Beach today (June 27) in support of the Clean Hong Kong Day.

She pointed out that since the implementation of direct issuance of $1,500 Fixed Penalty Notices to litterbugs last June, a total of 284 such notices had been issued at LCSD venues, of which 18 were given out at LCSD beaches.

Mrs Fok appealed for public co-operation to keep the venues including beaches and barbecue sites clean and tidy.

"It is everyone's civic responsibility to keep the environment clean and be considerate while enjoying our public facilities. All beach-goers and barbecue pit users should clean up before leaving and dispose of their rubbish properly," she said.

Public notices and banners have been put up and regular announcements are made at the venues to remind users not to litter.

The LCSD, Southern District Council and Southern District Clean Hong Kong Committee participated in today's clean-up and anti-littering operation at Deep Water Bay Beach.

Some 200 volunteers and students from four non-governmental organisations and three secondary schools in the district joined hands to support the operation, collecting 34 kilogrammes of litter and cleaned up 33 barbecue pits.

While anti-littering efforts at all LCSD's venues are ongoing, a similar special clean-up and anti-littering operation also took place at Golden Beach and Cafeteria Old Beach this afternoon with the participation of LCSD staff, members of the Tuen Mun District Council and Tuen Mun District Clean Hong Kong Committee, Tuen Mun District Clean Hong Kong Ambassador and about 200 volunteers and students from the district.

Their joint efforts saw the cleaning of 23 barbecue pits and collection of 30 kilogrammes of rubbish.
