Domestic Garbage Collection

Suva City Council strives to provide an efficient and effective waste management service to our residents. This service offers residents with the frequency of daily collections.

Municipal solid waste is stored by residents and commercial establishments in small bins (generally of 60-liter capacity) and plastic bags kept outside the house on raised platforms to keep the waste safe from dogs, or simply on the curb, until it is collected by the Suva City Council. Under the street litter bin sponsorship program, companies provide funding for public litter bins in exchange for placing advertisements on these bins. Household refuse collection is carried out directly by the Council using its own fleet of six compactors and two covered trucks. Waste collection
services are provided three (3) times per week in all areas, except for the central city area, where services are provided six (6) times per week.
