The cleanup campaign ran for five weeks from October 17 to November 20.

It was aimed to raise awareness on pollution and the impacts of plastic on the marine and coastal environment.

The initiative saw 37 different groups involved in the voluntary cleanup with 37 cleanup activities and also involved 29 presentations and community engagement and awareness.

The campaign is an initiative of the Sustainable Coastlines PNG (SCPNG) in partnership with the National Capital District Commission.

Waste can be used to produce energy: Engineer

Engineer and biofuel enthusiast Thompson Benguma says while solid waste is a big problem in Lae and Port Moresby – an eyesore and health hazard, there is still hope.

The waste could be converted into gas to generate energy like power.

Benguma said city authorities need to establish a waste conversion plant.

Smaller towns would only need to establish waste processing facilities where waste is separated and dried, and then transported to the conversion plant.

Get ready for Klinim Mosbi Campaign

Sustainable Coastline PNG (SCPNG), in collaboration with principle partner NCDC, is coordinating nine public awareness events across NCDC through the campaign.

Founder and CEO of SCPNG, Ryley Webster, says this is to educate NCDC residents about the impact of littering plastic products on the environment and human health. It will also inspire them to incorporate easy-to-adopt solutions into their everyday lives.

“The events will involve the delivery of these messages through the art of music, theatre as well as high profile ambassador appearance,” Webster says.
