The campaign forms part of the Good Green Deeds programme that was launched in 2019 by President Cyril Ramaphosa. Good Green Deeds seeks to change people’s attitudes, behaviours towards responsible management of waste and keeping their neighbourhoods clean, green and safe.
The programme is also a positive drive towards a clean South Africa which is free of litter and illegal dumping with more emphasis required in ensuring that the citizens now take a stand against the litter in their neighbourhoods and start to clean-up their areas.
The clean-up took place at the NU 2 Recreational Park next the Masizakhe Child and Youth Care Centre.
Other areas that were covered during the clean up campaign include Highway Taxi Rank and Recreational Park. The programme was also used to launch an awareness campaign for the new daily refuse removal schedule for midland region Mdantsane and surrounding areas. The new schedule will begin as of 9 March 2020.
