The Fiji Environment Management Act`s Waste Disposal Regulations came in to force in 2008.
The regulations introduce strict requirements in relation to the environmental management of business operations in Fiji.
Operators that discharge wastes, pollutants or hazardous substances into the environment are required to secure a Waste Disposal Permit from the Department of Environment.
ECF works with operators to enable them to meet the requirements of the permit. This often includes water testing and developing an environmental management plan for their operation.
ECF also liaises with Department of Environment on behalf of the client so as to secure a permit with a minimum of delay.
ECF has assisted some operators with significant waste management issues including:
- Goodman Fielder – Colo-i-suva abbatoir;
- Fiji Fish Ltd.;
- Vuda Pigs Ltd. (the largest piggery in Fiji); and,
- Management and Monitoring Plan for the Operation of the Naboro Landfill
