Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam continues its efforts to clean up the island's villages. The Abandoned Vehicle Program, after much stalling, has finally gotten off the ground and continues full-steam ahead.

Work was completed in the village of Santa Rita, and on December 1 the cleanup will begin in the village of Barrigada. Council director Angel Sablan explained how they hope increase productivity, saying, "The problems we are having is there are not many contractors that are available from the General Services Agency to do the hauling of vehicles, so we are working on that to see if we can get more on board."

Sablan says eleven more contractors have been approved by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency. Sablan says they hope to put out a bid to hire them on by next April. Currently the work in Barrigada is expected to take 3-4 weeks.

Sablan wants to remind residents that they must contact the Barrigada's Mayor's Office to schedule a pickup; and that only metal, vehicles and tires will be picked up.

Merizo is the next village scheduled for cleanup.
