Port Moresby City Rangers volenteers have cleaned up bus stops, markets and enforced the betel nut ban in public places in Port Moresby, says coordinator James Silas.
Silas said more than 600 youths, including women and girls, started sweeping bus stops and enforced the buai ban to remove spittle strains at Gordon Market last week. The team was not engaged by the city authority.
Port Moresby City Rangers was registered with the Investment Promotion Authority by Silas as an entity that engaged locals to do clean-ups in the city.
“We are not engaged by the National Capital District Commission,” he said.
“We want to show business es and the city authority that we can make the city clean. We live in the city and it is good for us to clean the city in which we are living.”
Silas said team would be proud to support plastic ban and betel nut ban initiatives.
“The group was split into 10s and 20s in different locations with their own group leader this week,” he said.
“We continued cleaning on Monday from the Fly Over Bridge towards Pineapple Building while others are cleaning along Waigani Drive.”
