AFTER the government lifted the prohibition to use public beaches and parks, the dumping of trash at various beaches and parks on Saipan has resumed, community volunteer Max Aguon said.

Some people are also throwing their trash on the road, he added.

On Monday, Aguon found a lot of trash, including household garbage, blankets and clothes, dumped by the roadside near Obyan Beach.

“I was able to fill six big trash bags,” he said, as he expressed his disappointment with people who indiscriminately throw their trash without regard for the environment.

Also on Monday, he said he discovered trash dumped on a road near Coral Ocean Golf Resort.

Aguon said he will continue to conduct cleanups from Monday to Sunday. “I will continue visiting all the popular beaches, pavilions and parks on Saipan. Someone has to help maintain their cleanliness.”

He is also hoping that the CNMI government will aggressively enforce the anti-littering law “to maintain the health and freshness of our environment.”
