Keep LCSD venues clean on fireworks display night
*************************************************


The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (February 4) appealed to people to keep LCSD venues clean and tidy while enjoying the Lunar New Year Fireworks Display on February 10 (2nd day of Lunar New Year).

"When leaving, please take away your belongings and don't leave trash or newspapers behind. Offenders will be subject to a fixed penalty of $1,500," an LCSD spokesman said.

The department will implement a series of measures together with other government departments to maintain cleanliness and safety in LCSD venues including the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC), Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, Avenue of Stars and UC Centenary Garden where large crowds are expected.

"Measures have been stepped up against littering by putting up more banners and arranging on-site announcement in Cantonese, Putonghua and English at the HKCC and Avenue of Stars." the spokesman said.

Part of the Piazzas of the HKCC and Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront are currently closed for works for Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade Beautification Project and people are urged not to congregate in the surrounding crowded areas during the festive season.

"People staying in crowded areas should stay calm and take care of their safety,"

"Along both sides of the Avenue of Stars and the seafront of Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, mills barriers will be placed to create a one-metre-wide sterilised zone to prevent anyone from accidentally falling into the sea," the spokesman said.

More refuse bins will be placed at the HKCC to keep places clean. Additional workers will be deployed in the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront area to quickly clean up the rubbish. As part of community support, there will be volunteer helpers at the HKCC to help spread the message of care for our environment.
