When we have a party at home, we take good care to clean up every trace of it afterwards, to return to a spic-and-span home…so why do we not take the same responsibility in our city?

We blithely assume that "someone" will come and clean up the mess that we’ve made, in the process of enjoying ourselves. All it would take is a little effort, to clean it up ourselves…but we seem to lack the civic sense, the sense of pride that our city is also our home…

A clean city is one that all of us will be proud of, let’s all take the trouble to do our bit!
