    A joint cleaning campaign was held at Pekan Tutong’s Bangunan Irama Aman 1 and 2, Bangunan Hajah Marianah DH Haji Abdul Wahab and Bangunan Hajah Rafiah yesterday.

    The campaign was the Tutong District Office’s initiative to maintain cleanliness and public safety, focussing on rubbish, long grass, dirty and clogged drainage, and unattended trees.

    Agencies joining in the campaign were the Tutong Municipal Department, the Public Works Department, the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation, the Fire and Rescue Department, the Royal Brunei Police Force, the Tutong Religious Affairs Office, grassroots leaders and entrepreneurs.

    Acting Tutong District Officer Mohammad Sofian bin Haji Basri said, “The main aim of the campaign is to clean up areas that need attention, especially long grass, clogged drainage and rubbish in public areas.

    “The campaign also serves as a reminder to all parties to play their roles in maintaining cleanliness at home, the workplace, places of interest and commercial areas.”

    He also reminded the public that the government, through its agencies and the provision of specific law, will not hesitate to take action on those violating the law relating to cleanliness.

    He also called on the public to maintain cleanliness in their surrounding environment.
