Free garbage collection

Shayal Devi
Wednesday, February 19, 2014

THREE municipalities in the Western Division are offering the free collection of rubbish in a bid to destroy mosquito breeding grounds.

Lautoka, Ba and Tavua special administrator Praveen Bala said residents should join hands in the free clean-up campaign.

"The increase in mosquitoes is an indication that there are potential mosquito breeding grounds around us so residents are requested to take advantage of the free clean-up campaign by thoroughly cleaning up their compounds," he said.

"Items, articles or containers likely to retain water and breed mosquitoes such as empty cans, bottles, tyres, coconut shells, discarded household utensils and drums will be collected," he said.

Mr Bala said residents should place the items for removal at convenient places from Wednesday and the collection would start from Monday next week.

"The campaign does not include the removal of green waste such as tree branches, plant prunes and grass weeds.

"I urge all concerned to support this campaign from February 19 to 28," said Mr Bala.
