A FREE environment clean-up for people residing in Lautoka is effective from today.
Lautoka City Council CEO Jone Nakauvadra says the clean-up will finish on September 27.
"Residents are requested to take advantage of the free environment clean-up campaign and thoroughly clean up their compounds taking special care for removal of any articles or containers likely to retain water and breed mosquitoes."
"These things are empty cans, bottles, old tyres, coconut shells and discarded household utensils."
Mr Nakauvadra reiterated the clean-up campaign was for residential areas only and the council would not dispose of industrial, trade or commercial waste.
"All residents must note the collection team will go through the area once only and the council will not be responsible for the removal of any rubbish placed after the allocated timeframe."
