Imere Rubbish Collection has taken on itself the responsibility to keep the roadsides clean at all times from the roundabout at Tagabe in Port Vila to the Mele Cemetery.

Imere Rubbish Collection is an organization that has won a contract from Shefa Provincial Council to collect and dispose of rubbish from Mele village on Efate, the largest village in Vanuatu now with a population of some 5,000 people.

Imere social worker, Lulu Sopus, says Imere Rubbish Collection has taken on itself the task of keeping the roadsides from Tagabe roundabout to Mele Cemetery clean utilizing the scores of young people who are only too happy to do the task.

He says Imere Rubbish Collection is appealing to people from North Efate to South Efate and especially those living along the stretch of the road in question to not litter and to help keep the roadsides clean of discarded rubbish to keep the road clean at all times.

“Please respect the roadsides because they belong to all of us and it is our responsibility to keep them clean at all times,” he added.
