CLEAN UP CAMPAIGN SUVA – NAUSORI CORRIDOR
The Litter Promulgation 2008 and Litter (amendment) Decree 2010 is now in force to control the problem of littering in public places.
The Ministry of Local Government, Urban Development, Housing and Environment through the Department of Environment, in partnership with the Suva City Council, Nasinu Town Council, Nausori Town Council, Land Transport Authority and Fiji Police Force embarked on a “Keep Fiji Clean Campaign”.
The campaign scheduled for 20th – 24th August, 2012 is coinciding with the Hibiscus festival event.
The Ministry says the target areas are all public places from Suva to Nausori Corridor.
The operation is exclusively dedicated to Litter Prevention Officer’s patrolling target areas during the Hibiscus week. They will be on the lookout for offences committed in general public places as well as their respective neighbourhoods.
Litter Prevention Officers are Police officers, Health Inspectors, Port Masters, Forestry Officers, Environment Officers, Land Transport Officers and others such as officers from Town Councils that are appointed by the Minister for Environment.
The highlight of the campaign is the issuance of Fixed Penalty Notices of $40 to anyone found littering at public places.
For any further clarification of this campaign, please contact the Waste and Pollution Control Unit of the Department of Environment.
