TWENTY-five schools in Vanua Levu have registered to be part of the Go Green clean-up campaign.
The initiative by the Bank of the South Pacific requires students to clean up their school compounds following the contribution of campaign kits by the bank.
Last week, the students cleaned up their schools while the bank staff combed Labasa's streets to pick up rubbish.
Labasa branch manager Anand Nair said the schools' participation had been tremendous.
He said the staff were divided into two groups, with one group picking up rubbish from Nasekula Village to town and the other started at the hospital and worked their way towards town last Saturday.
"This is an annual event for us here in the north since the inception of the campaign three years ago."
Mr Nair said the idea behind the campaign was to promote a greener environment.
"This is a positive move in trying to preserve our environment. It might be a small act in our own communities but the impact will result in a better look for the north," he said.
Mr Nair said they would continue to embark on such activities because it was not only beneficial physically but also environmentally.
About 40,000 students throughout the country took part in the campaign last week.
