Guam - A cleanup project long stalled and started one year ago is now moving along to the third village in the islandwide lineup. On Monday Sinajana vice-mayor Robert Hoffman say the project will get under way in Yona. The project began in Santa Rita and just wrapped in Barrigada.

Hofmann says he projects nearly 15 tons of trash has been removed, telling KUAM News, "I know Barrigada's figures were just astounding; to know thousands of tires 500 cars hundreds of white goods of what it is."

While Hoffman says issues with General Services Agency regarding contracting matters have slowed the project, he says he's glad to see results are finally adding up. He says they expect to spend about a month in Yona. Tamuning is the next village scheduled for cleanup.

For those in Tona who wish to have goods removed they may contact their Mayor's Office to request a form to schedule a pickup.
