Let’s continue taking pride in our communities by keeping Cape Town clean<p>​</p><span><p>The City’s Urban Waste Management Directorate is pleased to report that the Mayor’s Let’s Keep Cape Town Clean campaign has inspired many more community leaders and representatives to take up the fight against littering and dumping in their area. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure></span><span><div>Since the campaign launched in February this year, the directorate has supported 111 community clean-ups organised by ward councillors and community organisations. Support is provided in the form of blue bags, and removal of bagged waste to landfills.  </div><div><br></div><div>‘Our sincere thanks go out to all those who have participated in community clean-ups, and we hope that this will inspire more communities into action. The primary benefit of community clean-ups is residents demonstrating that they stand against littering and dumping. Unfortunately, some Capetonians still believe that it is the City’s duty alone to ensure that neighbourhoods are kept clean. While the City does have a role to play in keeping the environment clean and beautiful, we need a team effort with residents to make progress,’ said Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Waste Management Alderman Grant Twigg.<br></div><p><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure>​</span>​​​​​<span><div>Those who organised clean-ups since February 2022 include:</div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Shark Spotters </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Save our Schools </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Dunoon ECD forum </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Numerous ward councillors across the City</div><div><br></div><div>If you would like the City to support a community clean-up in your area please contact your Ward Councillor.
