Litter Clean Up day set for this Sunday

Date Posted: 2004-08-12

An Okinawa music group is leading the crusade for a clean island.

The group, Love Ranger, is heading an island-wide clean up campaign for this Sunday, and it wants everyone to participate.

Love Ranger singer “Cocco” is organizer with the Litter Zero Great Operation Committee, and she’s appealing to citizens to come out Sunday and participate.

Already, all cities, towns, villages, offices, boards of education, the Okinawa Times newspaper company, Ryukyu Broadcasting Company, FM Okinawa and a monthly book publisher are committed to the August 15th Clean Up Day.

Cocco is urging residents to “Let’s keep this island clean and beautiful.” Her group, Love Ranger, has been doing litter pick-up daily for quite some time, and is now expanding its focus to get everyone involved. This year’s event ties with “Chura Shima Environmental Beautification and Cleaning Group”, which is also doing annual islandwide cleanup campaigns.

The goal for Sunday is for thousands of participants to fan out across community halls, parks, beaches, sports halls, streets and open spaces everywhere to transform Okinawa into a shiny clean, beautiful island. Organizers say there are two ways to participate:

An easy way is to simply go where you want, and pick up trash and debris from that location.
The formal campaign has identified a series of places where help is needed, and collection points have been established for trash collected. Participants are needed at the following locations:

Urasoe City Uranishi Elementary School at 10am.
Nishihara Town Morikana Garden Parking Space at 9am
Chatan Town Minato Park at 9am
Yomitan Kina Community Hall at 9am
Okinawa City IT Work Plaza at 9:30am
Gushikawa Yonabaru Community Hall at 9am
Ishikawa Akebono Children’s Center at 9am

Organizers remind participants that the weather is hot, and safety precautions should be taken by everyone. Safety is an individual responsibility. Children must be supervised by adults.
