The Nasinu Town Council will take ownership of its waste management, in consideration of the population and properties within their municipality.

In 2020, the Suva City Council and Nasinu Town Council signed an agreement to share garbage collection services due to issues of solid waste management.

Minister for Local Government, Maciu Nalumisa says the two municipalities have agreed to separate the garbage collection services by August this year.
