The government continues to work alongside the contracted Solo Envi Beautification, ensuring that the beautification and greening of the city are on track as the Pacific Games opening ceremony is just a month away.
The Government Services Integrated Committee (GSIC) team leader, Mr. Leonard Ofainu, said the contracted group should complete all tasks before the games commence.
He said the contractors work from Henderson to Sports City.
“Landscaping and placing flowers along the road will appear welcoming and attractive for our visitors.”
“This compliments the Safe Green Games initiative,” the GSIC spokesperson said during the recent radio talkback show.
He urges line ministries and the private sector to come out in numbers during the clean-up sessions on Friday afternoons, as we have only 4 Fridays left before the games.
Honiara City Council (HCC) ward councillors were also active in their community clean-ups. Funds were allocated to them by the National Hosting Authority (NHA), and they are responsible for cleaning and collecting rubbish along the feeder roads throughout the city. Heaps of rubbish collected by the community groups were then picked up by the HCC waste management team for proper disposal at the Ranadi landfill site.
NHA also gifted vehicles and skip bins to the HCC waste management division, which will further service delivery during the games.
Honiara residents are also reminded to be responsible and maintain their roadside clean-up activities, as it displays pride and compliments the Safe Green Games campaign.
