Rubbish hazard

Shayal Devi
Friday, August 01, 2014

RUBBISH piled along walkways and streets is not only an eyesore but can be a potential hazard to the tourism business as well.

Lautoka Chamber of Commerce administrator Mohammed Salim said on a recent trip to Abaca, they were shocked to see the amount of pollution near the Tavakubu area.

"The chamber of commerce along with Lautoka Town Council plans to have an eco-tourism site in Abaca," he said.

"Many tourists go to Abaca when they spend their holidays here and seeing rubbish dumped along the trail will give Lautoka a bad name."

He said it was illegal to dump rubbish and called for all citizens to take appropriate measures when getting rid of waste materials.

Mr Salim said one of the prime focuses at the moment was bringing more tourists into Lautoka.

"This is the reason why we are focused on setting up an eco-tourism site as tourists will be attracted to this site."
