The Community Clean-up Initiative is tackling its biggest clean-up yet this weekend and members of the community who care about Hartbeespoort and its environment, are invited to join the team.
The clean-up takes place from K’Shane Estate to Damdoryn on Saturday and Sunday, 30 and 31 October.
“This is a long stretch of road that is very filthy with a lot of illegal dumping and we’ll need at least two days to clean. We need as many volunteers as possible to spread across two days,” says Stefanie Ash, founder of the initiative.
“We have Pecanwood College, Mountain Cambridge School and the Rotary Club of Brits-Hartbeespoort joining us and are meeting with a few other organisations, including Madibeng Local Municipality and Pecanwood Estate Homeowners Association to gather more help.”
The initiative cleaned up a whopping 221 bags of litter on the R512 along a 2.7 km strentch last weekend. They are aiming to fill 500 bags this weekend.
“Tuffy Brands has sponsored 400 bags that we know we’ll fill. We ask people to bring a roll of their own, as well as gloves.”
If you cannot join us in person, but want to assit the initiative, consider sponsoring gloves, bags, snacks for the volunteers, cold drinks, reflective vests and small first aid kits for small cuts and bruises.
The initiative also needs a pickup truck to move bags from along the side of the road to a central point for counting and collection. Please let the Community Clean-up Initiative know if you plan to join.
Volunteers meet in front of K’Shane Estate at 06:30. The clean-up will start at 07:00. WhatsApp 082 438 2822 if you want to join.
