The Suva City Council received two new garbage trucks and a new green waste shredder at the Suva City Council Depot in Samabula yesterday.

The Minister for Local Government, Housing and Environment Infrastructure and Transport, Parveen Kumar, said he was pleased with the Suva City Council’s investment.

“These significant investments made by the council shows that they will go a long way in delivering effective and efficient services in the area of solid waste management,” he said.

Mr Kumar said on average, 80 tonnes of garbage and 10 tonnes is collected daily from Suva City for disposal at the Naboro landfill.

“I am pleased to learn that the city has already planned to inject two more similar garbage compactor trucks into its fleet upgrade programme,” he said.

The two trucks would be delivered by late this year or early 2016.
