RESIDENTS around the Suva area are reminded to clear out all litter and debris from their compound to ensure a clean and safe environment.
SCC chief executive officer Bijay Chand had earlier called on residents to prioritise keeping their compound and homes clean.
“We are always reminding the public to keep Suva clean and the best way of doing this is to start from home,” Mr Chand said.
“They are encouraged not to litter and always keep their surroundings clean.
“When people practise this at home obviously when they go out they will keep their rubbish and put it in the right place once they see a bin.
“Or they should hold on to the rubbish until they reach home and dispose it of properly in the right place.”
After Cyclone Winston many residents have begun clearing out their compounds of fallen trees and objects.
“They should place the rubbish in a pile on the side of the road to be collected by the city council workers.
“Rubbish should be piled accordingly and not mixed altogether as they are disposed of in different ways.
“We should all work together to spread the right message and keep our city clean.”
