Street cleansing and removal of vegetation has been slow this year. New contracts start in November and we will monitor whether the performance improves. We wrote to government to improve the remuneration of street cleaners. We continue the push for keeping Pokfulam clean, especially paths, trails, staircases and drains.
The population of wild boars in Pokfulam is expanding. A large number of young ones have been spotted. To be able capture, neuter and relocate them the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department will start a controlled feed of this family at the slopes behind the Sandy Bay Fire Station mid-September. The feeding pattern will help the capture. In the meantime, make sure to keep your garbage locked up. Place refuse outside for collection only just before the collection times. Contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Facilities and management at major estates including Bel-Air, Baguio Villa and Scenic Villas support separation for recycling of plastics, paper, metal and glass bottles. Bel-Air has also set up food waste recycling. Clothes collection bins can be found at Baguio Villa, Bel-Air and at the Arcade. We have added glass bottle receptacles to the refuse collection point at Sassoon Road, at the junction of Consort Rise/Bisney Road and other locations. We welcome suggestions for new locations and changes to existing waste and recycling bins via email@example.com .
