We will continue to track down illegal operators and penalise unregulated dischargers and emitters, says the Department of Environment director, Sandeep Singh.

This was during the official opening of the Ministry of Environment’s Waste and Pollution Control roundtable meeting at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi on Monday.

There were a total of 25 participants from the hotel industries, municipal councils, fuel companies along with workers from Nadi International Airport and other organizations.

She highlighted that businesses and facilities around Fiji were reminded to meet the national environmental standards set under the Environment Management Act 2005, including its subsequent regulations.

“Facilities found not complying with the emission and wastewater discharge standards set out in the Environment Management (Waste Disposal and Recycling) Regulations 2007,” she said.

“We will continue to clamp down on businesses and facilities that continue to operate without meeting the national standards and our approval conditions.”
