New recycle bins to help manage waste
August 2, 2018 1:01 am
In an effort to manage solid waste in the Capital City, the European Union today handed over four new recycling waste bins to the Suva City Council.
Acting Head of Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific, Corrado Pampaloni says recycling is one of the few tangible things that anyone can do to minimize their environmental impact.
Pampaloni says recycling also reduces the load on the landfills by re-using the materials instead of throwing them away.
”By using a recycle bin you will let your friends, neighbors and casual visitors know that you are doing your part to keep the environment clean and will settle a positive example. Allow me to say that you will sleep easier at with the knowledge that you are minimizing your carbon footprint and help cleaning up the earth, hence leaving a better world to your children.”
The four new EU funded recycle bins will be installed at My Suva Park, Ratu Sukuna Park and Thurston Garden.
Meanwhile, Ministry of Local Government Permanent Secretary Joshua Wycliffe says they have been allocated more than one million dollars to beautify towns and cities.
