More than $8000 was used by the Nasinu Town Council to successfully clear up piled rubbish at Narere Stage 1, Muanikoso Housing, Nepani, Navosai, Ratu Dovi Road, Kings Road and parts of Kalokalo Cresent in Makoi.
The Nasinu Town Council together with the Commissioner Central’s office conducted the cleanup exercise, whereby the Nasinu Town Council hired two 12 wheeler dumper trucks, a 9 tonne dumper truck and two 6 tonne grabbers.
According to a Government statement the Suva City Council and the Commissioner Central’s office on the other hand, provided a 9 tonne dumper truck and three 7 tonne dumper trucks respectively.
In addition, the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces assigned 35 military personnel to assist in the cleanup campaign.
The campaign which started early this month will only be completed once all of the remaining areas are visited and rubbish is cleared.
These areas are Narere, Tuirara, Tovata, Nadawa, Kalabu, Valelevu, Caubati, Nadera, Kinoya and Laucala Beach.
The non-separation of white goods, kitchen and green waste and the daily dumping of rubbish on the roadside, has led to the delay in cleaning up Nasinu.
To prevent the spread of leptospirosis, typhoid, dengue, and diarrhea, the Council is urging residents of Nasinu to put their rubbish out, only on the days allocated for each area and to continue cleaning their compounds.
NTC paid $8,110 to carry out the cleaning exercise as part of their project sum of $62,700.
