The Calvo Tenorio Administration sends a huge “Dangkulu na si Yu’os ma’ase!!” to the many members of our community who stepped up to pick up trash and help beautify our island.
We’re still compiling the data from yesterday’s Islandwide Beautification Day but we estimate that with at least 30 volunteers at each of the 42 sites, more than 1,200 residents committed to keeping Guam. Volunteers helped pick up trash along roadsides, beaches and other areas.
“Islandwide Beautification Day was an opportunity for our residents to get out and give back to the community, to make an immediate impact,” Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said. “We love our island, and any opportunity to take care of it, we should take. We need to keep our island clean so that our children, grandchildren and future generations can enjoy the same beauty of our island that we have all know and love.”
Students from various elementary, middle and high schools, and community groups, including churches were among those who joined GovGuam agencies and private sector partners in what will be a quarterly event. Some groups, who are partners with Guam’s Roadway Adoption Program, came out to clean up their adopted roadways, adding to the 42 sites planned by the Calvo-Tenorio team.
In addition, Guahan Waste Control Inc. donated four 20-cubic-yard bins placed around the island. Pacific Solar and Pacific Pest Control donated trucks to assist Mayors who were collecting and transporting the trash bags from various areas and bringing them to the bins.
“We want to thank our GovGuam agencies, the Legislature and Judiciary, the Mayors offices, our DOE students, our military brothers and sisters, private sector partners, and all of our family and friends who came out to be a part of yesterday’s cleanup,” Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio said. “We couldn’t have done this without you! Thank you for helping to keep Guam beautiful!”
