Nasinu residents welcome daily rubbish collection run
Nasinu residents say they are happy with the new rubbish collection regime introduced by the Nasinu Town Council that began on Monday this week.
The council has begun collecting kitchen waste every week day. Previously, rubbish was picked up twice a week.
Selau Tikoisuva from Kalabu, Nasinu, said they were delighted with the “very good” daily schedule.
“It prevents us from digging a hole in the backyard to bury the excess rubbish which piled up due to the old schedule,” he said.
“Daily rubbish collection creates a beautiful, healthy and attractive environment.”
Asiabibi Ali from Kalabu, Nasinu, welcomed the daily rubbish collection.
“It’s the best idea,” she said “It also reduces the smell of rubbish rotting , cuts pollution and decreases risks of disease outbreak.
“Rubbish uncollected is scattered by dogs if it is left on the road for days.”
Under the Government’s 20182019 National Budget the Ministry of Local Government was allocated additional funding of $1.15 million to support the collection of rubbish from informal settlements and in areas within the town boundaries.
