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!
