Sinivit commemorates 50th anniversary

The program began with a 3-kilometre march pass from the LLG office in Sunam Ward to the Kadaulung junction in Laup Ward by students and teachers of Warangoi secondary and primary schools, Sikut and Rieit primary schools and LLG public servants, escorted by Warangoi police.

LLG president, Boniface Gerep, launched a two-day clean up program for all the 16 wards in the LLG.

The WED program coordinator and LLG Environmental Health Officer (EHO), John Piga, said no specific dates were set for the clean up program this week as it will depend on the individual wards.

Protect the environment

Rabaul District Health Manager, Garry Mano said it is important that rubbish is sorted according their categories making it easier to dispose accordingly.

“Have different bins for paper, plastic, metal, glass and even food waste. Separate wet waste from dry waste and by doing so we can identify what needs to be recycled. Waste segregation can also reduce the risk of injury or exposure from sharp objects such as broken glass and tins,” Mano said.

One Million Trees Planting initiative launched

The initiative aims to engage the community in a large-scale tree planting effort, enhancing green cover, mitigating climate change, improving air quality, and beautifying the Nation’s Capital through planting a million trees.

This year, NCDC chose six locations around the city to roll-out the initiative; Sana Peace Park, UPNG, Boroko (Agua Road), Bisini (Soccer Field), Murray Barracks and Bomana Correctional Service.

The objective was to transform the landscape, promote sustainability, and contribute to a greener and healthier city.
