THE members of Duzi-uMngeni Conservation Trust (DUCT) together with a group of volunteers from Pietermaritzburg and surrounding areas are ready to put on their safety gloves to clean up Msunduzi River.

DUCT will be cleaning the river on Saturday, September 18.

The cleaning campaign will involve the clean-up of the city, pavements, streets, schools and yards.

The manager of DUCT, a non-profit organisation, Caroline Scott, said this is an annual event which brings the community together to clean up the city and its rivers.

“Approach your teachers, your community representatives, your work colleagues, your sports clubs, your church or your neighbours to spread the word and join a clean up team for the big day.

“Make sure you dispose of the waste you collect correctly and remember to recycle wherever possible.”

“Alternatively, get your neighbours and community to simply clean up your own streets, neighbourhood, and pavements and nearby streams,” said Scott.

She added that people or schools who want to participate in this annual event can contact John or Caroline at DUCT on 033 345 7571.
