Keep environment clean

THE Fiji Roads Authority is calling on all Fijians to be responsible and not dump rubbish on roadsides.

While the authority has been contracted to clear rubbish along rural roads, it is urging people to play an active role in ensuring a cleaner and safer environment.

The statement follows concerns raised by members of the public in Labasa about how rubbish is piled up on the roadside for days without being cleared.

"I am not aware of a specific concern from the public and, yes, it's our task to clean up the rubbish on the roadsides including rural areas," said authority CEO Neil Cook.
