The National, Wednesday July 1st, 2012

STAFF of the Bank South Pacific Goroka branch, Eastern Highlands, undertook a clean-up campaign in Goroka town last Friday.
They will clean the main streets of Goroka town between 7.30am to 8.30am every Friday before going to work.
Bank branch manager Reuben Elijah said since the initiative was launched by the bank last April, they had regularly cleaned up the main shopping and business areas of the town.
He said the “Don’t dump, Bin it’ themed clean-up initiative was an ongoing exercise in line with the bank’s annual “Go Green” programme that was held on September 21-22 nationwide.
Elijah said business houses, corporate organisations and the public were doing business in main commercial zones of the town every day.
“There is a great need to take care of main business areas to ensure it remains environmentally friendly and provides a good environment for business activities to flourish,” he said.
He said there were a few business houses in Goroka that had shown interest in joining the clean-up exercise.
Elijah said more than 50 staff from the bank were always ready to take part in the exercise and he thanked them for their support.
He invited all businesses in town to join in the campaign.
