Public urged to keep venues clean on fireworks display night
*********************************************************


The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has made a public appeal for people to keep order and keep places clean while enjoying the National Day Fireworks Display on Friday (October 1).

"When leaving, please take away your belongings and don't leave trash or newspapers behind. Offenders will be subject to a fixed penalty of $1500," a department spokesman said.

"Measures have been stepped up against littering at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC) by putting up more banners, arranging on-site announcement regarding a keep clean appeal to visitors before and after the fireworks display. More departmental staff, security guards and cleaning staff are also deployed at the venue, " he said.

The spokesman said that 10 special enforcement squads comprising 50 officers were formed by representatives from the LCSD and the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department to tackle the problems of littering and illegal hawking.

More than 100 large and standard refuse bins are installed at the HKCC to collect garbage and 30 cleaners will be there to clean up the venue.

As part of the community support, about 100 young people will had help spread the message of care for our environment and help in the clean-up operation immediately after the fireworks display.
