ELECTRONIC waste, furniture and building rubble are always difficult to dispose of.

Kouga residents now have an opportunity to get rid of all their unwanted items and goods they have at home that cannot be put out for standard refuse collection – without leaving their pavement.

“The project dubbed ‘Coca-Maak Skoon’ – which is the isiXhosa and Afrikaans words for cleaning up – forms part of the ongoing Keep Kouga Clean Campaign and will run from January 17 to January 28,” said Kouga Community Services Portfolio Councillor, Daniel Benson.
