Cleanliness is not a privilege but a human value, says Environment Minister

Cleanliness is not a privilege but is above all a human value that needs to be preserved and instilled to the youth so as to keep their neighbourhood green and clean, the Minister of the Environment, Solid Waste Management and Climate Change, Mr Kavydass Ramano, stated on Sunday, at Résidence Père Laval, in Quatre Bornes.
 
He was participating in a cleaning campaign, organised by the Ministry of the Environment, Solid Waste Management and Climate Change, in collaboration with the Municipality of Quatre Bornes and the private sector, in the context of World Environment Day, celebrated on 05 June each year. This cleaning campaign spans over three days, from 28 to 30 June 2020.
 
Minister Ramano highlighted that it is important that everyone considers cleanliness to be a value that must be perpetuated. This campaign, he said, must not be a one-off event for the inhabitants as it is important for them to keep their neighbourhood clean and lively by regularly carrying out cleaning activities. Furthermore, he underscored that his ministry has embarked on several projects to replant several types of trees across the island. Priority is being given to decorative, fruit and endemic trees.
As for the Parliamentary Private Secretary, Mrs Tania Diolle, she underlined that the inhabitants of Résidence Père Laval are involved in the campaign as they previously made complaints to the authorities about unmaintained land and polluting waste. Cleanliness of the neighbourhood, she emphasised, is a collective effort and not the sole responsibility of government and municipal authorities. Mrs Diolle thus made an appeal for the youth to be more involved in keeping their neighbourhood tidy.
It is recalled that cleaning campaigns have already been carried out at Bain des Dames, Cassis, Sainte Croix, and Cité La Cure, among others, and several other regions have also been earmarked in the coming days.
