Caubati resident Praneel Sharma is happy that the Nasinu Town Council has now cleared rubbish heaped around the dump bins at Mamas Place.

“It makes so much a difference when rubbish is cleared and the dump bins emptied,” Mr Sharma said.

Mr Sharma hopes that the council will not wait for Fiji Sun to contact them and then clear out rubbish.

“I hope parents, guardians and residents stop sending their children to throw rubbish near the dump bins,” Mr Sharma said.

“It’s our collective responsibility to take care of our own community. We all deserve to live in a healthy and friendly environment,” he said.

Mr Sharma hopes that the council sets up a neighbourhood watch committee to track down irresponsible residents carelessly dumping rubbish.

“The council can also organise  rubbish dumping awareness, like classifying rubbish when they are disposed,” he said.

“Residents need to be enlightened on how to separate rubbish like glass, plastic, green rubbish etcetera.

“The council is covering densely populated areas, to minimize rubbish collection issues, there needs to be some system.”

Nasinu Town Council had cleared half of the rubbish on Tuesday and the rest on Wednesday following the complaints by the Mamas Place residents to the Fiji Sun.

The Fiji Sun had run the story on the Wednesday edition.
