Clairwood clean-up continues

Various Municipal units embarked on a mission to rejuvenate and reclaim both the commercial and residential areas of Clairwood.


A clean-up campaign was held on 30 October and will continue to take place every Friday until 10 December.


Irene Chetty from the City’s Area Based Management Unit: South Basin said the team was mandated to focus on inspecting business premises for licences, the sale of illegal goods,  checking for expired food, levels of cleanliness, that health and Covid-19 safety protocols were being adhered to, that there was fire safety equipment as well as looking out for illegal dumping, illegal structures being erected and any illegal connections.


 “The main objective of conducting a multi-disciplinary clean-up is to promote hygiene, curb criminal activities such as drug peddling, prostitution, the sale of stolen and counterfeit goods with the added benefit of assisting small businesses comply with regulations as this will boost the economy,” said Chetty.


Municipal units that participated in the clean-up included Metro Police, Safer Cities, Durban Solid Waste, Roads and Storm Water Management, Area Based Management, Environmental Health, Fire and Safety, Business Support, Business Licensing and Building Inspectorate.


Clairwood resident, Natasha Govender commended the good work being done by the City and urged the community to work with the Municipality to clean up spaces and to stop illegal dumping.


“The clean-up is beneficial to the whole community as a crime-free, well maintained City will improve the value of our properties and attract investors,” she said.
