Another clean up of this area is also being planned in the coming months.

Guam – Local organizations within the community teamed up to clean the beach access road behind Crowns Guam in Tumon.

 

The Guam Visitors Bureau partnered with the Trench Fest organizers, Sidekicks Soccer Team, Islandwide Beautification Task Force, Matson, Tamuning Mayor’s Office and Televista Property owner David Su, volunteers from the University of Guam and USS Kitty Hawk joined in the collaborative clean up effort. 

While the public beach access point was the main focus, the team also cleaned up the surrounding area, including the roadside leading to the beachaccess in Tumon. The trash collected was enough to fill up a 20 foot container and also a 40 foot container.

GVB General Manager Nate Denight says illegal dumping and homelessness continue to be a problem, but we’re proud to see the community come together to help clean this public safety hazard in Tumon.

Additionally, GVB recently conducted a clean up of another illegal dump site in Tamuning near Mark’s Sporting Goods with the Guam Power Authority, Guam Waterworks Authority, Tamuning Mayor’s Office and Guam Environmental Protection Agency.
