IT’S been a week since the media publicised the increase of plastic at the Kukum drainage. Yet no action has been done since.

A concerned citizen yesterday uploaded a photo showing plastics increasing at the Kukum sites, and calls on responsible authority to address this issue.

Tutuila last week told Island Sun that HCC had carried out a campaign and attempted several times to clean up the Kukum drainage but have failed.

Meanwhile, members of public through social media suggest that the betel nut markets at Kukum need to be relocated.

Tutiulu said that HCC is working hard to find a suitable place to have the betel nut market relocated to.

He added that Kukum market is a temporary site HCC had allocated for betel nut market.
