exchange with Youth Regarding the situation in the crowded Nguyen Hue pedestrian street area (District 1, Ho Chi Minh City), with many people littering at every occasion, especially on weekends, District 1 Public Utility Co., Ltd., of the city Representative. Ho Chi Minh City (the unit that ensures cleanup work in the Nguyen Hue pedestrian street area) acknowledges that garbage has been present here for a long time.
This person further said that the company usually arranges two shifts of workers to work here every day and during holidays they add more workers.
On weekends, the unit also sprinkles water to wash roads and pedestrian streets. “Although the waste generated here is terrible, many people lack awareness about food and then leave their waste there.
From Nguyen Hue Walking Street to Bach Dang Wharf Park, garbage appears from time to time, even though it is constantly cleaned.
On holidays or weekends when a lot of people come, my unit gives out trash bags to guests so they can put them in them.
When the event is over, workers come and take the garbage bags in a car to the collection point. “This method was invented by the brothers to save effort on cleaning and collection, but also to give people a place to keep their garbage and not throw it on the street,” this person said.
According to the data provided by this unit, on fireworks nights, the amount of garbage can reach 100 – 120 tons (including Nguyen Hue Walking Street, Ham Nghi Street, Vo Van Kiet, Ton Duc Thang…). Around 10 – 20 tonnes of garbage is dumped in this area on weekends.
Meanwhile, the number of visitors to President Ho Chi Minh’s Memorial Park, Nguyen Hue Street, Bach Dang Wharf and Ba Son Bridge has increased sharply in recent days, according to data from the District 1 People’s Committee.
On weekdays, around 2,000 people visit these places, and on weekends and holidays it can increase by 2-3 times.
And from there, problems arise in urban order and traffic safety when many people park on the sidewalk because there is no parking space (especially at Bach Dang station) or there is a parking space but it is too far. The price is quite high.
Residents and tourists also need food and drinks, but this service is lacking, leading to many street vendors looking for customers, leading to insecurity and lawlessness.
Moreover, due to lack of space to rest, many people use plastic chairs or carpets to sit, leading to loss of urban aesthetics.
Not only is garbage thrown indiscriminately, but there is also a situation on Nguyen Hue Walking Street, where people casually bring faceless dogs and cats outside to enjoy the cool breeze.
Mr. Hoang Duong (living in Go Vap District) said: “My child is only 4 years old. When I dropped him off, he wanted to run and jump a little, but he was very scared. There were some foreigners The dogs were so big and muscular that they kept moving around. Since I’m surrounded, how can I feel safe in taking you down?”
