In a bid to reduce litter, residents and businesses are urged to comply to waste management practices.
THE VARIOUS clean-ups held throughout September as part of the Spring Clean-Up Campaign have been effective in sprucing up the City. But this should not signal the end of the public practising good waste management or keeping their areas clean, said eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda. “Working together is the only solution to keep big cities around the world clean and attracting more tourists.
Operations to clean the City will be intensified as we are expecting an increased number of tourists because the beaches have been reopened to the public,” said Mayor Kaunda. He said more cleaning resources will be deployed to ensure that beaches remain clean.
This in turn will unlock trading and economic opportunities. However, behavioural change is key to achieve a clean and healthy City, he emphasised, adding that compliance by residents and businesses to waste management practices will lead to less litter in areas.
