THE Ministry of Waterways has advised the Rakiraki Town Council to clear the town’s overflowing rubbish dump.

Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy said he had had a discussion with the acting CEO regarding this issue.

“They need to clear that because the rubbish has gone into the waterway and the entire waterway is now blocked,” Dr Reddy said.

“It is becoming a breeding ground for mosquitoes so we need to deal with this.”
