The Mayor of Freetown, Her Worship Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr took part at the European Union annual beach clean-up event at Lumley and Aberdeen Beach.

Her Worship went with her team comprises of tricycle youth groups, sweepers and some FCC trucks which was facilitated by Aruna Mans-Davies.

As a tourist attraction places, the European Union considered Lumley and Aberdeen Beach as key places to remain clean. This yearโ€™s beach cleaning brought lot of attentions as many youths took part in the cleaning process.

On her voice, Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr shared this on her page;

โ€œThis morning I joined Ambassador Manuel Muller and our friends at the European Union in Sierra Leone for their Annual Beach Clean-up event!

We were able to support them with trucks and tricycles to transport waste collected from the beach to the dumpsite.

FCC works to clean the city every day so I want to use this opportunity to remind our residents that you too can help keep Freetown clean by calling waste service providers to pick up your household waste regularly.

Dumping waste in gutters, streams and other waterways may save you some money but will cost us all a lot more. Such waste will end up on our beautiful beaches destroying our tourism potential. It could also block waterways which causes flooding and becomes a breeding ground for mosquitos that transmit malaria.

Use to find waste service providers if you need to. Say NO to dumping waste in gutters and other waterways!
