The campaign was carried out from 21 – 24 July 2020 with the close cooperation between NSRP Social and Community Section and Security Team in 2 fence-line wards and 4 fence-line villages/ residential groups.
In the process of disclosure, various information-sharing methods were carried out including one-on-one meetings, group meetings to violators, village heads’ houses, key stakeholders and authorities at W/CPCs, public announcement via loudspeaker systems and community notice boards. Information including relevant fire prevention and fighting regulations and the danger of garbage burning near NSRP fence was summarized in the PA script, flyers in Vietnamese language to ensure information was understandable to fence-line villagers. Furthermore, 8 warning signboards of “no garbage burning” are also hang along the refinery fence of 4 fence-line villages where the local people often burnt garbage in recent times or might dispose/burn garbage in the future.
