Nausori Recycling Company Eyes Pollution-Free Island Environment

In a bid to promote a healthy environment in outer islands, a recycling company in Nausori will transport recyclable materials to its factory in Viti Levu.

Waste Recyclers Fiji Private Limited (WRFL) chief executive officer, Amitesh Deo, said they were working on ensuring that recyclables from outer islands do not end up polluting the environment.

“We are in the planning stages of conducting a feasibility study on how we can establish networking with outer islands in order to bring the recyclables back to the mainland,” he said.

“This particular project has been in the pipeline for some years now and got further deferred due to COVID-19 and its related restrictions.

“With our upcycling projects, certain recyclables will be upcycled to finished or semi-finished products on the islands before being transferred to the mainland.

“This might also create economic benefits for the islands and its people.”

The company was also working with other key agencies to establish a Hub and Spoke model that would connect outer islands to the mainland.

Mr Deo said there was no waste management system in outer islands.

“While WRFL continues to pave the way for more awareness on recycling and change in mindset on mainland Fiji, it also believes that outer islands must not be ignored when it comes to better waste management.”
