0

Mr Tuivaga said it was a good day for bonding as many young people brought friends and family members to participate in the clean-up programme.

Around 75 volunteers from a community in Tavua chose to spend the last day of their Easter weekend leading a clean-up campaign.

They collected and filled around 300 bags of trash, most of which were recyclable materials.

The Tavualevu Youth Group project manager, Timoci Tuivaga, said he was surprised at the good turnout.

“We only had about 40 T-shirts with us, but the number of people who showed up for the cleanup campaign surprised us,” he said.

“It shows us how proud the young people of Tavualevu are of their citizenship and we even involved children in the campaign.

Mr Tuivaga said it was a good day for bonding as many young people brought friends and family members to participate in the clean-up programme.

He said their area of ​​interest was Tavualevu village and Tavua town.

“We have identified another area in Tavua that has been used as a dump for several years,” Tuivaga said.

“We would be looking for sponsors for the activity as it will be on a larger scale.

“We will submit our proposal to the various business houses in Tavua to request sponsorship of trash cans.

“We will be asking for around eight bins and for them to be collected either by Tavua City Council or Fiji Waste Recyclers.”

He thanked their sponsors, Bank South Pacific (BSP), Waste Recyclers Fiji, Tavua Hotel, Ajay Nand and Salote Bokini.
