Roadside Trash Concern Residents

“Diwali is when people do their massive cleanups. Rubbish on the streets maybe was a result of the clean ups, but it does not look nice,” he said.

White goods, dried leaves and garbage bags filled with kitchen refuse were disposed along Vishnu Deo Road in Nakasi.

Resident, Anand Rao, 58, said it was not a pretty sight, especially when Diwali was in a few days.

“Diwali is when people do their massive cleanups. Rubbish on the streets maybe was a result of the clean ups, but it does not look nice,” he said.

“I think people should realise the dates for pick-up of white goods.”

Another resident, Jane Maciwai, 28, said what used to be small piles were becoming bigger.

“I recall seeing pictures of such piles in Nasinu. Because of the ignorance and laziness of some people, the area is looking like a mess,” she said.

Meanwhile, Nausori Town Council had clarified that they had done collections for white goods in Nakasi.

The next collection would be on November 14 at Davuilevu.

Nausori special administrator, Uma Kant Patel, had earlier highlighted the irresponsible habits of people piling rubbish and called for a change.
