The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) continues with our “clean slope initiative” clearing rubbish accumulated along slopes in Pokfulam. Current focus is on slopes near Consort Rise, along Victoria Road and below Mount Davis Road. UNFORTUNATELY, new garbage has been found on slopes we recently cleared. We urge residents to query their building management, cleaners and contractors on waste and rubbish disposal. Do compel all to keep slopes adjacent to your properties clean. The majority of the waste collected is either domestic rubbish or small construction waste. We thank the FEHD foreman, inspectors and contractors for navigating the steep slopes. We also thank adjacent private properties for providing access.
The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) has cleared rubbish accumulated along the slopes at Consort Rise, Waterfall Bay and Mount Davis Road. The operation at Consort Rise was challenging given the hot weather, steep slopes and lack of access. Hundreds of garbage bags had to be lifted using ropes. We have written an appreciation letter to thank FEHD team including the contracted workers, foreman and inspectors involved. We also like to thank the private properties along Consort Rise for allowing the use of their parking areas.
The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) is clearing rubbish accumulated along the slopes of Pokfulam. The focus this week is on the slopes below the properties at Consort Rise. The waste accumulated over the years was huge. Over 700 bags full of all sorts are being removed. We thank the team for their efficiency in safely navigating the steep slopes, and the district council for funding slope cleaning projects. Meanwhile, please remind your contractors to clean up after renovation projects. Next, FEHD will deploy their teams to clean up the slopes near Waterfall Bay and along the trail connecting Mount Davis Road and Victoria Road.
With vegetation dried up, waste left on slopes has become visible. Slope cleaning teams from the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department are working hard to clean up. If you see areas in desperate need of attention, let us know with pictures/location details via firstname.lastname@example.org.
First of all let me thank the community groups who helped clear some slopes. We are also working with different government departments on cleaning of their slopes section by section. We encourage private buildings to clear the slopes under their maintenance responsibility. Importantly, we need everyone to help keep slopes clean.
I thank all dog walkers who pick up dog poo. But please remind all dog walkers to STOP THROWING DOG POO BAGS DOWN THE SLOPES. Take the bags to nearby bins. In case you or they don’t know where the bins are or they are broken or missing, let us know at email@example.com.
Keep Pokfulam Clean.
Exploring the slopes next to Baguio Villa for a possible trail between Victoria Road and Pok Fu Lam Road together with residents, we found large amount of waste dumped. The waste was left behind when squatter homes were cleared over 20 years ago. Government contractors have now cleared the site.
