Littering ordinance effective tomorrow

By Ezekiel Talatau

IT’S come to a point where the responsible authority and the nation need to actively enforce the littering ordinance for the benefits of our people and the future of our country under the theme: “environment cleanliness”.

Chief Health inspector, Mr George Titiulu reported to Island Sun yesterday that the littering ordinance will be enforced tomorrow.

The Honiara City Council (HCC) had collaborated with the Friends Of The City and Youth@work for the last 2 weeks doing awareness about the littering ordinance.

Friends Of The City leader Mr Judah Suimae said they are willing to help in many ways for the country.

He added that they are looking to expand their works to Auki and the Western province if HCC has any funds to support them.

This week is the last week of awareness and as of tomorrow people will have to be wary of this new law.

Titiulu said they will also collaborate with the Chinese association to let them know about the littering ordinance.

He also added that within the seven meter boundaries (minor littering ordinance), each shop should be responsible to look after their premises, if not, the HCC will remove their licence.

HCC will also work together with other water company such as Blue Water, V-Fresh and Yami to address littering of bottles plastics, he added.
