Litter spot fines to increase

IN a bid to help address the challenges of waste disposal, Nausori Town Council chief executive officer Akhtar Ali says they will soon review spot fines for people who carelessly throw their rubbish.

Mr Ali said the fine, which was $40, would now increase to $100.

This, he said, would help address and lessen waste disposal in Nausori Town.

"We go house to house and street to street to see if people are dumping rubbish outside the stretch of waste collection time and currently, the environment law is being reviewed to increase to $100," he said.

"Anti-litter is part of our daily ongoing programs. We have litter officers monitoring rubbish, it has become a nightmare in Fiji.

"We have been doing awareness programs here in Nausori to help address the issue.

"Last year, we organised anti-litter days and clean-up campaigns in all the sections in Nausori."

Mr Ali urged the people of Nausori to work hand in hand and dispose their rubbish properly.

"The message we want to give to the people of Nausori, our ratepayers and businesses in Nausori, is that they should take pride in Nausori because of its significant history and currently, Nausori is serving the provinces of Rewa, Tailevu and Naitasiri and the amount of people that travel through the town just makes the town significant," he said.
