Nadi residents have been urged to make time this Saturday and help clean-up the Namaka and Martintar areas.

The campaign, initiated by roading company Higgins Fiji, focuses on these areas as the increase in litter continues to challenge the efforts of Government in its beautification project.

Higgins Fiji is contracted by Government to provide road maintenance in the Western Division for four years. It began in January 2013.

Company project manager Nadi N2, James Walsh, said the cleanup starts at 7am on Saturday from Votualevu roundabout all the way through to the Wailoaloa intersection.

Joining the campaign will be local businesses, Mount St Mary’s School and Namaka Public School.

Mr Walsh said residents have been asked to join in the initiative.

“We are just coming to finishing off the job and we have noticed that there is a lot of rubbish that is left behind,” Mr Walsh said.

“So we thought it was a good opportunity to get the public involved, businesses and schools, to get Namaka and Martintar tidied up.”

A concerned Mr Walsh said public should be educated on how to properly use the rubbish bins provided.

“We have placed rubbish bins out there and recycle bins as well, but we have also noticed at bus stops people tend to throw their rubbish beside the bins or out of the vehicle windows.

“So we thought of a campaign to try and get this section of the road cleaned up,” Mr Walsh said.

The Nadi Town Council is now involved and other businesses and schools in this campaign, he added.
