Tema, July 17, GNA – Residents
near the Sakumono beach have been called upon to desist from dumping refuse at
the beach as it poses health hazards to the community.

Madam Emelda Armarh, a
member of the Friends of the Sakumono Beach, told the Ghana News Agency that
the rubbish being dumped at the beach was not the best.

Madam Armarh said it
was worrying as some residents have dug holes at the beach where they emptied
their refuse into.

“We have a beautiful
beach and tourists love it. There is therefore the need to keep it clean,” she
stated.

According to her, for
the past six months, members of her group which is made up of retirees, have
been using their pocket monies to ensure that the refuse dumped at the beach
were cleared.

She therefore called
on the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) to ensure that a garbage truck or skip
was positioned at the beach and regular emptying is done to ensure a clean
beach.

She said with the
provision of a garbage truck, revelers would also desist from littering the
beach as that also add up to the filth.

Sakumono beach
popularly known as Titanic beach is an open beach where revelers, both men,
women and children throng every weekend and holidays to enjoy themselves and
relax leaving behind filth mostly plastic bottles, disposable cups and plates
and papers.
