The Medine Group donates 300 bins

Several actions have been initiated by the Medine Group in response to the “Clean Up Mauritius” campaign, which is a Governmental project set up on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the Independence of Mauritius and the 26th anniversary of its access to the status of Republic. The last one is the granting of 300 bins to the Municipal Councils of Vacoas/Phoenix and Beau Bassin/ Rose Hill and the Black River District Council (BRDC).

Medine’s landbank, mostly to be found in the west and which falls under the aegis of the BRDC, and on the outskirts of towns that are under the management of the Municipal Councils of Vacoas/Phoenix and Beau Bassin/ Rose Hill, it is hence naturally with those Councils that a series of action have been undertaker during the financial year 2017 – 2018. Among which, the donation of plants from Medine Garden Centre for the embellishment of round-abouts as well as the granting of man-power for targeted cleaning campaigns in the towns of Vacoas and Beau Bassin and Albion village.

During the months of July and August, the Group has distributed 300 75L plastic bins to the partner-Councils and the 100 last were officially donated to the BRDC on Thursday, the 16th of August, by Mr. Fabien Harel, Development Manager at Medine Property in the presence of Mr. Steeve Magdeleine and Mrs. Marie Aimée Bhujohary, respectively Chairperson and Acting Chief Executive of the BRDC.

On this occasion, Fabien Harel has underlined the fact that, “In line with its commitment for Education and the Environment, the Medine Group hopes that its contribution will give a helping hand to the various projects of the Municipal and District Councils, both in terms of materials and for the awareness of the public with regards to the preservation of the environment.”

Mr. Steeve Magdeleine, BRDC’s Chairperson, mentioned the importance of the BRDC–Medine partnership for the socio-economic development of this part of the island and thanked the Group for its corporate citizenship presence in the western region.

Mrs. Marie Aimée Bhujohary added that the bins will particularly be helpful since they will be placed in schools and colleges of the western region as well as in public health centres.
