Ward 79 embarks on a clean-up campaign
IN AN effort to spruce up ward 79, a group of enthusiastic volunteers led by the Community Participation and Action Support Unit embarked on a clean-up campaign. The drive, which is envisaged to continue for the next few weeks, started this month.

The initiative is supported by ward 79 Councillor Sithenjwa Nyawose, in partnership with Durban Solid Waste (DSW). Bathobile Nene, a Community Mobiliser with the Community Participation and Action Support Unit who was instrumental in organising the programme, said the clean-up campaign was one of many initiated by the department. “We are the first point of contact for people in wards and it is our duty to develop programmes that will benefit people.” She said the intention was to make ward 79 one of the cleanest wards in uMlazi. “We have received a lot of support from the community as well as the ward councillor.” Nene said the programme was not only about cleaning up the area but also educating residents in order to change their behaviour. “We want to educate people about the importance of keeping their neighbourhoods clean.

We want residents to keep their community clean,” she said. Menzi Ngcobo, a community member said when he was invited to be part of the clean-up, he was excited to make a difference. “This is a very good initiative which will help create a safe and healthy environment for residents.” Meanwhile, DSW has appealed to the public to stop illegal dumping by reporting anyone who is dumping illegally in their community.

Witnesses are urged to take down the registration number of the vehicle or the address of the person dumping and report it to the DSW Help Line on 031 311 8804 or email DSWCustomer.ServiceLine@durban.gov.za Alternatively they can contact the Ombudsperson on 0800 20 20 20.
