MARIGOT:— In order to carry out an immediate clean-up of the beaches after the Easter weekend, the Collectivité asked the EME company to intervene as early as Tuesday morning and to erase all traces of the campers who left behind a lot of garbage in spite of the dumpsters deposited for this purpose. A team of 10 workers was dispatched for cleaning the beaches of Galisbay, Friar Bay, Grand Case, Cul de Sac and the Galion. Tuesday noon, all beaches had regained their original appearance.
The Collectivité remind its population that the public good is the good of everyone and that it is up to everyone to preserve it. An eco-responsible attitude would have been necessary for the campers to pick up their rubbish and throw them into the bins set up by the Collectivité before the Easter weekend.
Despite a permanent awareness to respect the environment, too many people continue to ignore the rules and panels informing about the need to preserve our island. The environmental police were instructed to verbalize the offenders.
Concerned about the cleanliness of the territory, the Collectivité of Saint-Martin passed a public contract with the company of insertion EME for the cleaning of the beaches after Hurricane Irma. This cleaning is still ongoing and will continue as needed.
