Calls to take waste management seriously

Update: 12:08PM LOCAL Government, Housing and Environment Minister Parveen Kumar opened the 3R National Framework launch in Nadi this morning by calling on the general public, businesses and communities to take waste management seriously.

“With increased urbanisation, the pressure on existing infrastructure is also leading to illegal waste dumping,” he said.

Mr Kumar called on all people operating businesses illegally in residential areas to refrain from doing so.

He warned that municipal councils would increase monitoring and surveillance of any illegal dumping of waste.
