The National Clean-Up Campaign will move to Sangre Grande this coming weekend, the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government has said.

On Saturday 22nd April, 2017 clean-up exercises will commence after a brief launch ceremony at the Administration Building on Ramdass Street, Sangre Grande at 8 am.

The Ministry said that as the Easter vacation continues for schools across the country, it invites all sea-bathers, campers and parents along with their kids to come out and lend a helping hand to corporate volunteers, volunteer groups, employees of the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation and residents as we do our civic duty to restore clean communities that bring a sense of pride in our twin-island paradise.

"Let us join together as we continue to create cleaner, healthier and safer communities through the spirit of volunteerism," the Ministry said.

Clean-up exercises will tackle overgrown lots, derelict vehicles, dilapidated and ruinous buildings, disposal of bulk and white waste, desilting of major drains and watercourses as well as clearing of debris.

The Ministry is asking citizens to identify and report ruinous structures, derelict vehicles, illegal signs and overgrown lots to your municipal corporations to ensure that the proper procedures are followed.
