Council removes trash, destroys breeding ground

MORE than 40 tonnes of white goods were removed by the Nasinu Town Council, following a clean-up campaign last month.

Nasinu Town Council special administrator Mosese Kama said the two-month campaign was aimed at eradicating all potential breeding grounds of mosquitoes.

"The campaign carried out within its seven wards was to specifically collect white goods which the ratepayers had discarded from their homes," he said.

Mr Kama said the campaign cost the council $8500.

He said white goods posed a problem to the community as it contained hazardous materials that were harmful to the environment.

"White goods are discarded household appliances and derelict items such as old machinery, fridges, iron parts, discarded furniture, tins, tyres and other items whose life span have expired," he said.

A similar campaign has been proposed for next year.
