For the past two or three years, broken glass has littered the tideline at Kwun Yam Wan (south of Tung Wan beach). Sometimes little, sometimes quite a lot, and including still sharp shards.
Although glass is cleaned, more arrives - and it seems a key source is decrepit former barbecue site just south of the beach. Here, concrete has broken up, revealing a mass of broken glass that had been dumped there.
This year, I've emailed the government about this; so too have a few others. Till now, not much has happened - evidently as the former barbecue site is owned by someone, so not easy for government to act. [Maybe formerly thought of as government land, so a barbecue area was built; then realisation it is private, and barbecue site abandoned.]
But, now this email from government:
[quote]Thank you for your complain, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department has replied as follows –
"This Department maintains daily removal work of broken glasses within our beach boundary. In order not to affect the beach operation and beach goers during swimming season, this office will arrange a massive clearance of the debris at the concerned area in winter. Thank you for your kind concern to Kwun Yam Beach, and you are welcome to contact Mr. Edmond NG of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) at 2852 4813 (email address: email@example.com) if you have any opinions and complaints."[/quote]
