Waste Awareness Programme launches, fun activities planned for beachgoers<p>As December approaches and the school year closes, it's time for fun in the sun for residents and tourists alike. </p><p>Unfortunately though, fun in the sun also normally comes with increased litter at the city's beaches. </p><p>As such, the City's Public Awareness and Education Team, and the anti-litter mascot Bingo, will be heading down to beaches to remind revellers that it's possible to have a good time, but still to look after the environment while you're at it.</p><p>During the visits the team will be running a programme of fun games and activities like volleyball with Bingo, spot the Bingo bin, music and dance, with great prizes for all participants. </p><p><span><figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/PublishingImages/Bingo%20at%20the%20beach.jpeg" alt="" style="width:802px;" /></figure>​</span>'I am calling on visitors to have fun, but also to please respect our beaches and recreational areas this festive season.
