Lekwa Local Municipality clean-up campaign continues in Ward 6, today. The team has been in the ward since yesterday, clearing illegal dumping, sweeping the streets and more. Several areas in ward 10 and ward 3 have been cleaned in the past weeks as part of the ongoing clean-up campaign taking place on Wednesday s and Thursdays.
MMC for Community Services and Safety Cllr. Seipati Modise said residents must follow appropriate waste management practice such as not throwing litter on the street, using litter bins, taking out refuse on the scheduled collection days and desisting from dumping illegally on open space.
“We urge residents and businesses to play their part in maintaining cleanliness in their surroundings and ensuring a healthy environment because a healthy environment leads to healthy living for both the young and the old,” she said.
The clean-up campaign was launched by Executive Mayor, Cllr Louis Thabethe on 05 July 2023 at Burger Street. He said at the time: “We are just launching it here but we will be embarking on this programme continuously within various wards of the municipality.”
Residents are encouraged to help keep Lekwa clean by disposing of waste responsibly.
