KOUGA Municipality has taken hands with local businesses to go visual in its war on waste.

Seven colourful signboards, requesting visitors to “Keep Kouga Clean”, are being erected at the entrances to Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp, Hankey and St Francis Bay.

Cleansing teams across Kouga are also set to be armed with 46 new litter-picking trolleys bearing the same branding.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality had partnered with the Jeffreys Bay Superspar, Humansdorp Spar, Hankey Spar, St Francis Bay Superspar and Build-it for the awareness campaign.

“We are grateful to our local business sector for their support. A clean Kouga is good for all of us. It makes for happier and healthier communities. It also attracts more visitors and potential investors, thus stimulating the economy and opening up job opportunities,” she said.
