MEMBERS of the public need to be more responsible while disposing rubbish.

This was the sentiment shared by volunteers and stakeholders who were part of a clean-up campaign organised in Lautoka last weekend.

More than 75 Lautoka residents came together for the event which coincided with World Clean-Up Day 2018.

During the course of the two-hour program, volunteers cleaned the Drasa Ave bridge and the sides of the Kings Rd.

In a statement, the Rotary Club of Lautoka said people needed to take responsibility for their own rubbish.

“You can teach young children by example to throw rubbish in a bin, not out a window or on the ground,” the statement said.

“Litter and rubbish on our streets, creeks, and parks are harmful to nature and to us so take responsibility and keep Lautoka clean, green and beautiful.”

The group plans to organise more clean-up campaigns soon.
