A territory-wide clean-up campaign set to run for six months is underway.
The campaign, which is being dubbed the ‘Trash Tag Challenge’, is targeting areas throughout the communities including beaches, parks, shorelines, homes, roadsides, and schools.
Virgin Gorda which is located in the Ninth Electoral District has been completed so far.
Clean-ups are now being undergone in the Fifth and Sixth Districts.
As part of the ‘Trash Tag Challenge’, officials are asking residents to help share the challenge on social media, by cleaning up their surrounding areas and posting the before and after pictures with hashtags ‘trashtag’, ‘trashchallenge’ or ‘CleanUpChallenge’.
Cleanup is slated to continue in the Seventh District in June before moving on to the Eighth District in July. The Trash Tag Challenge will then move to Third and Fourth districts in August.
The campaign is scheduled to culminate in the First and Second districts in September.
