Initially, we had plans to position litter bins at the Bus Stops and Streets, but that would not be feasible right in the immediate because we need to work with the Urban and Regional Planning Authority to be able to effectively achieve the desired result. Consequently this aspect of the Project is suspended in the interim, but will remain key in our long term plan in pursuance of achieving our Strategic Goals. Pending the placement of bins at the Bus Stops and Streets, there are locations where high influx of people is recorded on a daily basis. Examples are the Municipal Council Secretariats, State Secretariat, Campuses, Parks, Markets, … etc. The whole idea is to capture the attention of people by placing STOP LITTERING STICKERs at the gates and other strategic points within these enclosures for people to use the available bins. Secondly these places (with the exception of parks and markets) are confinements with high Security network, so the possibility of theft may not be a concern. Again the use of the bins may not be abused. Summarily, when people get exposed to using the litter bins in these places, the tendency is that they will begin to learn to withhold trash until they find a suitable place to dispose of it and will ultimately be wary of Littering.
