KOUGA Municipality is intensifying its efforts to eradicate the bucket system.

“Almost 4 000 households in the Kouga region still rely on this inhumane system,” Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said in his State of the Municipality Address.

While we should be able to eradicate more than 2 000 buckets through current housing projects, the Council also launched a multi-year programme in the current financial year to eliminate the need for buckets.”

He said a total of R2,3-million of the municipality’s own income had been set aside for the roll out of container ablution facilities to informal areas. The project will be piloted at Stofwolk in Hankey.
