Junk vehicle cleanup proceeds in Barrigada

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The mayors' Abandoned Vehicle Program continues currently in the central village of Barrigada.  Sinajana Vice Mayor Robert Hofmann says mayors are trying to deal with the increased illegal dumping in their respective villages.

"We were able to get several purchase orders open for different recycling companies to assist those mayors where they have those particular emergencies. Where they have emergencies where they do see eyesores coming. The problem we're having is that one or two refrigerators end up on the side of the road and suddenly they multiply," he told KUAM News.

"We didn't know that white goods can breed, and suddenly they're all on the side of the road. Everybody waits for that chance, once they see one tire, there will be a row of tires." Hoffman reminds residents that mayors are giving out citations for illegal dumping. 

Additionally he says it's much better for residents to pay a $17 tipping fee than be force to pay a $1,000 fine.
