Roll up your sleeves and help keep city clean

In a bid to stop illegal dumping and promote cleanliness among residents of eThekwini, Mayor Zandile Gumede has announced that plans are afoot to roll-out a campaign aimed at ensuring that the city is kept clean.

Mayor Gumede told members of the Executive Committee yesterday (Tuesday, 23 May) that an environmental forum will be set up to address the low levels of environmental management, littering and illegal dumping in the city.

“There needs to be a collaborative approach among city departments in how we address these challenges. Through the environmental forum we will ensure that the city is kept clean.

“We should also make opportunities available for local communities so that they become part of this programme,” said Mayor Gumede.

She said it was important for the different units to work together.

“I will be championing this forum through the Operation Sukuma Sakhe programme which is already operational. This will ensure that the city is clean while providing opportunities for the poor,” added Mayor Gumede.
