National Cleanup exercise for Saturday


See below press release from the Private Sector Commission:

The Private Sector Commission will, once again, partner with the Government of Guyana to carry out a National Cleanup Exercise which will commence in Georgetown on November 12, 2022.

The Exercise will commence from five hours on Saturday, in collaboration with the National Enhancement Committee. It will remove derelict vehicles, scrap metal, and garbage from 17 locations including Durban and Smyth Street, Camp Street, and Mandela Avenue.

The PSC encourages all businesses, civil society, non-governmental organisations and, indeed, every citizen to support this initiative. We encourage all to promote a healthier Guyana by cleaning their immediate surroundings and avoid the indiscriminate dumping of garbage which can attract hefty fines. Further, the Commission urges all to ensure garbage receptables are in place and encourages the planting of trees to beautify the environment and, generally, improve the overall aesthetics of their communities.

Chairman of the PSC, Mr. Paul Cheong, said the Commission recognizes the importance of public-private partnership and is, therefore, pleased to fully support the clean-up exercise. He said that it is essential that our capital city sets the example for the rest of the country and that we can proudly show it off as the garden city of the Caribbean.
