Cleaning campaigns good effort to foster community relations
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
MORE than 150 people turned up for the cleaning campaign yesterday organised by the Municipal Department to overcome the issue of littering in Brunei.
The campaign took place at Kampung Pancha Delima and Kampung Delima Satu Mukim Berakas ‘A’.
Speaking to The Brunei Times, a resident of Kampung Pancha Delima, Hj Sabri, said that it is a good effort made by the government to ensure the cleanliness of the nation.
“Not only that, I believe it is also a good effort to foster relations among
the residents of different villages.”
Meanwhile, a youth from Kampung Delima Satu, suggested that cleaning campaigns be conducted regularly.
“We shouldn’t just stop at this. It should be done every two weeks, if possible. It is not nice to see rubbish lying everywhere.”
The 20 year old who is an environmentalist, has participated in multiple cleaning campaigns at school and around the country.
“Not everyone will participate in these campaigns but if we try hard to show them why it needs to be done, I’m sure more will be willing to join and help.”
“I also think it’s about time we separate our trash and have recycle bins everywhere in the Sultanate.”
Also present during the cleaning campaign was Acting Assistant Brunei-Muara District Officer, Ak Kamal Ariffin Pg Hj Md Yassin, Legislative Council Members YB Hj Gapor @ Hj Mohd Daud Karim, YB Hj Tahamit Nudin, village heads of Mukim Berakas A as well as members of the village legislative council (MPK) of Kampung Pancha Delima.
