THE Labasa Town Council is embarking on a campaign aimed at encouraging cleanliness within the township of Labasa.

And to engage residents, the council yesterday organised free pick-up of garbage and other refuse from the homes of ratepayers and those living within the municipality. Labasa and Savusavu towns special administrator Vijay Chand said the campaign was timed to coincide with Diwali preparations by some residents.

"We will be holding other free pick-up to ensure that waste is properly disposed and managed," he said.

"We are concerned about the proper disposal of all litter, debris, used tyres, empty tins and bottles and other refuse apart from garbage and garden refuse.

"Ratepayers are also advised to trim down all overgrown trees and hedges for removal and disposal."

Mr Chand said derelict vehicles and scrap metal, including building materials, could also be disposed of by the council at a cost.
