Piling rubbish raises concerns

DUMPING of rubbish on roadsides have been a concern for a small community at Salusalu Place along Duvula Rd in Nadera, Nasinu, for the past three months.

Speaking on behalf of the residents, Mohammed Khan claimed the authorities had not been collecting rubbish from the area, forcing people to burn rubbish on the roadside.

"It's been three months now that the Nasinu Town Council has not been coming to collect the rubbish," Mr Khan claimed.

"If you drive from the main road to here, people are burning the rubbish on the roadside, some even try and burn rubbish right next to the electricity posts.

"A pile of rubbish here is almost two metres high and here at Salusalu Place the pile of rubbish is about three metres high."

Nasinu Town Council chief executive officer Lute Berends said rubbish was collected on Wednesday afternoon.

He said the council worked on a seven-week schedule for collecting green waste.
