Public urged to dispose rubbish the proper way

Wednesday, February 07, 2018

Update: 5:18PM THE Acting permanent secretary for Ministry of Forests Bernadette Welch is urging members of the public to dispose their rubbish the proper way.

Ms Welch who was part of the 'Walk in the Park' programme in Colo-i-Suva Forestry Park this afternoon said there seem to be an increase in rubbish disposal within the park. 

"One of the reason that we undertook this exercise today was to highlight some of the beautiful national parks that we have around Fiji," Ms Welch said.

"We would like the people of Fiji to enjoy and in order for them to enjoy and in order for them to keep attracting tourist to this path we also need to make sure that we keep them beautiful."

Meanwhile, 10 government agencies were part of the clean-up campaign today.
