‘WAR ON ILLEGAL DUMPPING’ campaign

Ward 4 Committee

The Ward Committee of Ward 4 under the leadership of Cllr Anne Windvogel, took the initiative to kick start a ‘WAR ON ILLEGAL DUMPPING’ campaign.
Even the cold winter’s morning of Saturday, 12 August 2017, could not put a damp on the high spirits and motivation of the ward and sub committees gathered to start the task at hand around 08h00am.

The team started in Sallie Street and followed along Essenhout street where the illegal dumping has caused health, safety and various other risk factors.

The illegal dumping had escalated from domestic refuse, broken equipment, builder’s rubble and even included human feces, found in Melkhout Street.
The team was advised to not continue with the specific dumping site because of the major health hazards posed.

The last dumping hotspots identified and cleaned were Geelhout and Kiepersol Streets. Bitou Municipality assisted with a clippers, brooms, rakes, black bags, masks and gloves as well as a digger loader and trucks for the removal of all the rubbish. This project ran well into the day.

The vision of the ward 4 committee in partnership with the Municipality to erect gardens at the various dumping sites to discourage and ultimately eliminate illegal dumping in Ward 4. “We want residents to take pride in their community”, Cllr Windvogel said.
