2008-06-15 00:00

The KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Agriculture and Environmental Affairs, Mtholephi Mthimkhulu, yesterday congratulated eThekwini Municipality for winning the National Cleanest Town competition 2008 under the Metro category.

Newcastle Municipality was one of the nine municipalities that received certificates of participation under the Local Municipality category.

The competition was organised by the National Department of Environmental Affairs in partnership with provincial departments and municipalities.

The independent panel of adjudicators assessed, among others, pollution levels, general cleanliness, community awareness and waste management to determine winners.

The MEC said he believes that this recognition is an indication of the general cleanliness of KwaZulu-Natal and it will serve as an encouragement to other municipalities in the province to work even harder in the creation of cleaner air systems.
