Southernwood spruced up!

Southernwood spruced up!

As part of Madiba Month, the Metro together with Border Kei Chamber of Business (BKOCB) and Mercedes-Benz South Africa (MBSA) hosted a massive Call-2-Action clean-up campaign on Thursday 27 July at St Georges Park in Southernwood.

Call-2-Action is the initiative by the BKOCB in collaboration with the Metro, MBSA and other businesses based in BCM to enhance the conditions of those living, working and operating in the City.

MBSA, DNF Waste and Environmental Services, Buffalo City Metro, and the Buffalo City Metropolitan Development Agency (BCMDA) provided man power to tackle the scourge of waste which covers most parts of the Southernwood area.

The cleanup is part of Mandela Month activities to create a conducive environment to live, work, invest, and play in. Being a largely residential area, with some business component, the Southernwood area has been chosen to benefit from this great initiative.

Speaking at the clean-up, Buffalo City Executive Mayor Xola Pakati said, “Well done, we are so proud of you. The area is spotlessly clean. Keep up the good work.”

“Our intention is to provide a green, clean and a better life for the citizens of Buffalo City. The clean-up looks at improving the City’s image and attracting investment,” said Pakati.

This has a potential to improve the City’s image and its ability to attract more investment.”

BKCOB Executive Director Les Holbrook said,” The public also attend and took part in the cleanup and contributed to the larger picture of a cleaner and greener City.”

“The cleanup is focusing on the clearance of illegal dumps, clearance of the drop off / collection points, litter picking / street sweeping and gutter clearance, grass cutting and bush clearance, beautification of open spaces,” said Holbrook.

The participants were divided into groups in order to ensure that all the areas are cleaned.

During the cleanup, Call-2-Action Service Provider, DNF Waste and Environmental services also educated the public on how to generate income from waste.

 

A resident from Southernwood, Phaphamani Jonas who participated in the cleanup said, “We are pleased to have an initiative like this in our community as it will keep our area neat and healthy.”
