Municipality initiative to keep town clean

2016-07-14 06:00

THE Hibiscus Coast Municipality (HCM) is to continue with Operation Sihlanza Amadolobha Ethu, a campaign that started more than two years ago, with support from stakeholders and the community.

“This clean-up campaign will be slightly different than the previous ones as it will be encompassed by an advocacy sessions that will focus on bringing awareness into our towns and thereby keeping our municipality clean,” said HCM mayor, Nomusa Mqwebu.

“The campaign will be marked with a thorough clean-up of the taxi rank and the removal of abortion stickers,” she said.

Starting on 15 July, the clean-up will see the responsibility being shared, which include stakeholders such as business associations, informal traders associations and taxi associations.

“The municipality has done in-depth planning for the campaign whereby the milestones were reached such as forging partnership with the business sector, door-to-door education campaign of each business on how to manage waste and change in system from plastic bags to wheely bins for businesses.”

The operation has been further enhanced by including a drive through Port Shepstone to identify potholes, streets with faded painting, streetlights that are malfunctioning among other issues.
