- The amendment of Fiji’s Public Health Act in 2018 enabled the expansion of garbage collection services, initially limited to municipal boundaries to all rural communities. There are several recycling companies established in the country, but challenges remain with providing incentives for local communities and collection services for recyclables. The major challenges in providing effective waste management in Fiji includes high operation costs associated with garbage collection services, the remote location of communities, increasing waste generation, and the location of approved disposal sites.
