SIBU: It is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ev­ery­one to keep our en­vi­ron­ment clean at all times.

Kiew Nang Poh Neigh­bour­hood Unit chair­per­son Cr Kap­i­tan Con­nie Loh said this at a Clean­ing Cam­paign or­gan­ised by the unit at an open space near SJK Kiew Nang, Salim yes­ter­day.

“Sibu is con­sid­ered good in clean­li­ness com­pared to other towns and cities. Our town cen­tre is quite clean and we do not see rub­bish scat­tered on our streets,” she said.

She said Sibu Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil is al­ways or­gan­is­ing clean­li­ness cam­paigns to help keep Sibu clean and pleas­ant for peo­ple to live and work in.

“Clean­li­ness cam­paign is im­por­tant as it is an op­por­tu­nity to clean up our en­vi­ron­ment and help raise pub­lic aware­ness on the im­por­tance of keep­ing our town clean.

“We should also build up the habit of clean­li­ness,” she added.

Con­nie added that with the ra­bies out­break, more care­ful should be given to dis­posal of rub­bish to keep stray dogs, cats even rats away.
