Call made for extra bins

SANATAN Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha national youth wing president Rovil Singh says there needs to be more rubbish bins placed in areas between Suva and Nasinu.

Mr Singh made the comment after youths from the Sabha conducted clean-up campaigns in these two areas.

"While conducting our clean-up campaigns we noticed there were not many rubbish bins placed in these areas," Mr Singh said.

"We conducted the campaigns in Nasinu, Suva Point, Albert Park, Nadawa and Nakasi. A lot of rubbish was collected."

He said the group's main purpose for running the campaign was to work towards their sustainable development plan 2030 on climate change.

"These goals include re-planting trees and looking after the mangroves. We are interested in venturing into the marine ecosystem in the country," Mr Singh said.

He said the youth group wanted to conduct research on why there were fewer rubbish bins within the Suva-Nasinu area.

"What we think is that there should be big yellow bins placed in densely-populated areas so that people can at least use them," Mr Singh said.

He said members of the public should be educated more on the issue of proper disposal of rubbish.

"They should know how to recycle bottles, cans, plastic bags and vegetable waste separately. If this is done, communities can improve," Mr Singh said.

He said the Nasinu area still had places where rubbish was not disposed of properly and they would start their clean-up campaign from April this year.

"We are planning to take our youth members and go clean up areas in Nausori as well this year," he said.
