Search for dump site
A NEW site for a rubbish dump on Taveuni has yet to be located.
Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica said a site had been identified in Mua, towards the north side of the island but because of the presence of the agriculture research station in the area, initial plans were waived.
"We are looking for another rubbish dump site and that is still in the process," he said.
