A nationwide anti-litter campaign will be launched in November and heavy penalties ranging from $40 to $2500 could be levied on citizens who are found not abiding by the rules, says Director of Environment, Jope Davetanivalu.

He made the comment while getting briefted by from three command groups after the conclusion of their “Anti Litter Campaign” along the Suva and Nausori corridor.

The Joint-Operation Litter Promulgation 2008 and Litter (amendment) Decree 2010 was put together by the Fiji Police, Land Transport Authority, Department of Environment and Local government authorities in July this year to combat the issue of littering.

“The relevant authorities from the five departments formed teams to monitor the Suva Nausori corridor which is part of the week long operation,” Davetanivalu said..

A number of people and industries have been issued a penalty after being warned for the first time and not being able to comply with this warning, added Davetanivalu.

The issues that trigger the problem of littering in Fiji are, “People not willing to look for a bin, people thinking various items are not litter, lack of social pressure to do the right thing and most importantly lack of penalties or consistent enforcement,” Davetranivalu concluded.
