Ratepayers and residents within the Sugar City have been reminded that the extension of the campaign does not mean they can keep putting rubbish out on roadsides.

The council’s chief executive officer, Jone Nakauvadra, confirmed that the clean-up campaign that was supposed to end on March 31 has been extended because collection of rubbish along the roadside was not completed.

“The clean-up is extended for the first two weeks in April, but the council team might finish by the end of April.

This will allow the clean-up campaign team to clear all rubbish,” he said.

“We still need to work with the members of the community to clean up mosquito breeding places to make our city cleaner.

“People should have already placed their rubbish on the side of the road, the extension is so the council’s clean-up team can clear the rubbish from roadside.”

Mr Nakauvadra added there were more non-green goods and household rubbish on roadsides.

“People are putting it out so we can’t do much, but collect it,” he said.

Ratepayers and residents are urged to help the council during the clean-up campaign and not create more rubbish to be an eyesore on roadsides.
