CITA clean-up drive draws record numbers

The weekend proved to be another successful clean-up drive for the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) in its continuing efforts to clean up Grand Cayman, says a press release from the organisation.

CITA members along with the West Bay youth group Pay It Forward (PIF), cleaned debris along the airport road, the entire airport perimeter fence and the Harquail bypass early Saturday morning.

A record breaking 40 members turned out to collect garbage, which was picked up by the Department of Environmental Health (DOEH).

These member volunteers represented companies such as Atlantis Submarine, Hyatt, Pro Yacht, Red Sail Sports, Ritz Carlton Construction Company (Stingray), Grand Cayman Marriott Resort along with the Pay It Forward group.

CITA President Mark Bastis wished to thank all of the volunteers and members that participated as well as the DOEH for its continuing support.

Casandra Hibbert, CITA’s Assistant Director, said that the past two weeks of roadside cleaning have been very successful and one of CITA’s goals remains to return Grand Cayman to its pre-storm state for residents and visitors alike.

Island residents are reminded to properly dispose of their garbage and to ensure that items being carried to the dump are covered so that it doesn’t blow out.

‘It is up to all of us to keep our islands beautiful,’ reads the release.

There will be many different clean-up projects in the weeks to come and the CITA is encouraging everyone on the island to participate in some of these activities.
