Guam - An islandwide cleanup, which began one year ago got underway in the village of Yona this week. Mayor Jose Terlaje says thousands of residents have signed up to have trash metals, tires, junk cars and white goods removed. Three companies are working in conjunction on the project in, Yona, Bali Steel, Dirt Doctor and Angoco's Trucking.

Terlaje says the clean up will cost about $7,000 a day. He says he expects the project to take about one month with a little less than one metric ton being removed a day.

Terlaje says he has been working on similar cleanup efforts for several years, saying, "Actually this is not the beginning of the scrap metal pickup Yona the other companies though would just pick up what they want and leave the others behind the left over is being picked up now  by some of these companies."

The entire project is estimated to cost over $3  million. After crews leave yona they will next head to Tamuning.
