CONCERN has been raised on the volume of rubbish dumped along the seawall in the country's capital.
Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu, staff of the Fiji Corrections Service headquarters were joined by a few inmates from the Suva Corrections Centre in their quarterly activity.
On Saturday, the group cleaned the seawall along the city foreshore as part of the department's civic pride engagement.
Lt-Col Vasu said people should learn to take responsibility.
"We would live in a cleaner environment if everyone puts their rubbish in the right place," he said in a statement.
Corrections spokeswoman Ana Tamani said the involvement of inmates in the department's activities was in line with the Yellow Ribbon initiative in giving offenders a second chance.
"While we are contributing to the keeping the environment clean, we also want to give inmates a sense of purpose and belonging," Mrs Tamani said.
"We want the communities out there to get used to seeing offenders take part in these kind of initiatives because it helps to restore relationships with them and ensures their successful reintegration back into society."
