Help us sweep up illegal dumpers and get a reward<p>​</p><span><p>As part of the #SpringCleanCT, which kicked off on the 1<sup>st</sup> of September, we set up a 24-hour toll-free hotline for residents to report tip-offs about illegal dumping activity and other by-law infringements. </p><p>We handed over a reward to Cape Town resident Riaan Delport yesterday after his reporting of illegal dumping led to the truck used being impounded.  </p><p>In July, Mr Delport alerted the City to illegal dumping taking place on the side of a road in Dunoon. A truck was discarding a pile of rubble. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:853px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>Cleaning up Cape Town requires all of our efforts and we encourage residents to come forward like Mr Delport did - and they can do so anonymously as well. If you see illegal dumping, take down the vehicle license plate number and report them to us. They could be fined up to R5000, have their vehicle impounded, or face a two-year prison sentence. For every fine and conviction, there are potential rewards available from R1000 up to R5000. </p><p>It is within our ability to change the culture of litter and dumping in Cape Town. We are calling on residents, schools, businesses, and community groups to join the #SpringCleanCT campaign. </p><p>Additionally, the City is adding 300 more boots on the ground to clean Cape Town this spring, with a call for residents to get involved in community clean-ups. </p><p>The public can use the below contact details to communicate with the City about illegal dumping in their area:</p><p>24-Hour toll-free Tip-off line<em>:</em> <strong>0800 110077</strong></p><p>Email: <a href="" target="_blank"><strong><em></em></strong></a><em><strong>.</strong></em></p><p>To notify the City about dumping that needs to be cleared please call <strong>0860 103 089</strong>. </p><p><strong>You can also get involved by organising or joining a clean-up</strong>.
