Project to improve waste management in Nasinu

Update: 4:59PM THE Nasinu Town Council (NTC) will receive $449,542 for the procurement of two nine tonne garbage compactor trucks to supplement the current fleet of trucks that is being used by the Council.

This has been possible with the assistance of the Government of Japan through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) Programme.

The two new nine tonne garbage compactor trucks is expected to provide greater efficiency as more garbage can be carried on fewer trips to the Naboro Landfill and at the same time provide a more conducive working environment for garbage collectors who are usually exposed to the stench of garbage, bacteria and toxic substances.

This project aims to improve waste management operations of the Council by providing an efficient, hazard free and timely waste collection service to the people of the Nasinu.

Ambassador of Japan, Masahiro Omura, will sign the grant contract with the Special Administrator of Nasinu Town Council Mosese Kama tomorrow to formalize Japan's assistance at a signing ceremony.
