Mayors temporarily suspend islandwide environmental cleanup collection

220

While all mayor’s offices remain open throughout PCOR1 for essential services to its residents and the manåmko’, the collection of recyclables such as abandoned vehicles, white goods, tires, green waste, and electronics are temporarily put on hold until Governor Leon Guerrero lifts the stay at home order in Section 1 of Governor’s Executive Order 2020-28.

Please contact your village mayor for items you want picked up. Do not dump any of these items on roadways or government easements. If you are caught illegally dumping you may face a fine of up to $1000. Call or email your mayor’s offices to schedule a pickup or they may refer you to a staging site.

Public Parks and Beaches Remain Closed Except for Subsistence Fishing

Meanwhile, pursuant to the Governor of Guam’s Executive Order 2020-28, all Government of Guam parks and beaches remain closed to all activities, except for the purpose of subsistence fishing. Anyone caught at any public parks or beaches for any reason other than subsistence fishing may be arrested and prosecuted for Criminal Trespass.

The Guam Police Department (GPD) will work with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) and the Office of the Attorney General to assure compliance through the duration of the “Stay-at-Home” Order.

All residents are asked to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 within the community by adhering to the “Stay-at-Home” Order, refraining from any social gatherings, wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, and practicing good hygiene like washing hands frequently.
