Follow Garbage Timetable, Caubati Residents Urged

Ratepayers need to dispose of their household rubbish according to the timetable laid down by contracted garbage collectors and the Nasinu Town Council.

Caubati resident Deepak Chand, 32, said that people had to “act smart when disposing  of  rubbish in terms of time management’’.

When residents miss the garbage trucks, they tended to dispose of their rubbish in very untidy ways, Mr Chand said.

“People throw rubbish indiscriminately when the rubbish truck has left the area on collection days. Or even at night when next day is not the rubbish collection day.

Mr Chand said rubbish from several days would pile up. There was always an unpleasant odour and reflected poorly on the sense of hygiene of Caubati residents.

A big pile of rubbish was located near his house, he said.

It was embarrassing when visitors from outside Caubati called at his home. There was a foul smell permanently in the air, he said.

“It made the look of the environment dirty and embarrassing for us locals when people from other area see this,” Mr Chand said.

He said that since there was a dengue outbreak people should be aware of on how they should keep their compounds clean and be mindful of how they dispose of their rubbish on the due date.

“Sometimes there were so much rubbish piled up on the roadside that people do not have space to walk,” he said.

Questions sent to Nasinu Town Council were unanswered when this edition went to press.
