“With the provision of a new nine-tonne garbage compactor truck, I am confident that it will help address the difficulties faced by Labasa Town Council and assist waste collection and management.”

Labasa is the largest town in Vanua Levu with an estimated population of 11,000.

Hence, the Council has been facing a lot of difficulties in accommodating the waste disposal demand.

Recently, the Council had resorted to hiring two 5 tonne garbage compactor trucks and two non-specialized open trucks to ensure waste collection.
