Collaboration of Girne Regional Municipalities in Roadside Cleaning


Five municipalities in the Girne region have collectively organised cleaning up of the  roadside and central reservation on the 24km route between Gönyeli roundabout and Alsancak roundabout.

With the approval of the Presidency, the environment clean-up and environmental protection project “Think Clean”, for the roadside and central reservation clean-up work has been completed on the 24km route between Gönyeli roundabout and Alsancak roundabout. Girne, Dikmen, Alsancak, Lapta and Esentepe Municipalities contributed to the campaign. Within the scope of the project, each municipality cleaned the grass alongside  the road including the central reservation of the road of 4km length and collected garbage. Girne Municipality cleaning branch teams cleaned the part between St Hilarion Crossroad and Onar Village which is the main road entrance to Girne city under the responsibility of highways.

Güngördü: The problem is not cleaning, but pollution

Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü said that he is happy to cooperate with the Presidential Office and the Girne Region municipalities within the scope of the Think Clean Project. In order to ensure that the route most frequently used by tourists is clean.  Güngördü stated that cleaning was done on the main road extending from the Nicosia junction to the Alsancak junction in the framework of the suggestions made by the Municipalities in order to clean the route that the tourists use the most, and said that the Girne Municipality would cooperate with the other Municipalities. Pointing out that they aimed to raise awareness in society, Güngördü added that the original idea is to teach not to pollute and to educate the citizens not to pollute the environment.

  1. Stronger rules should be taken for dumpers of rubbish in Cyprus that’s for sure. Public education also should be given a lot of help to function properly and efficiently on the issue of garbage disposal.
