Honiara city council campaigns against perception that it is one of the dirtiest cities in the region

The Honiara City Council in Solomon Islands is launching an aggressive campaign to fight the tag of being one of the dirtiest cities in the region.

Warning letters are being sent to all city businesses and residents asking for their rubbish to be cleared from their premises by June 4, or face penalties.

Honiara City councillor Lawrence Makili says the council is taking the matter very seriously and is pulling out all stops to remove rubbish from the streets of the capital.

"We have ordinances that stipulate clearly that any garbage or any scraps or any pieces of metal lying around on the streets should be removed," he said.
