Clean-up campaign in Bethal

Monday saw a very surprising sight for residents at Bethal Dumping site. The Executive Mayor kept his promise and started his clean-up campaign in Bethal.

For a very long time residents were greeted by the sights of refuse everywhere if they travelled from Standerton towards Bethal.

It may now well be a thing of the past!

Focus on Clean-up

The following statement was taken from the Govan Mbeki Municipal Facebook page.

In an effort to increase environmental awareness, the Govan Mbeki Municipality is currently embarking on a clean-up campaign, Ijima lokuhlwengisa, in Bethal today, 15 March 2021.
The campaign was launched by the Executive Mayor, Cllr Nhlakanipho Zuma, on 11 December 2020.

The Executive Mayor’s participation in the programme has drawn significant support from the business sector, which has partnered with the municipality to provide TLBs, front end loaders and tipper trucks.

The programme has expanded whereby local communities are organising their own clean-ups in problematic areas.

Furthermore, it has created a platform where the municipality is educating people about recycling.

The municipality has a buy-back centre in eMbalenhle (Extension 26), and there are other formal private buy-back centres within the municipality, situated in Bracken, eMbalenhle, Secunda, Kinross and Bethal.

A buy-back centre is a multi-recycling centre that buys recyclable waste such as paper, plastic, cans and glass from people and then sells it to recycling companies for further processing.

All of these centres are easily accessible to the community, and residents are encouraged to separate their waste at home and take the recyclables to one of these centres.

Thank you to those residents already making use of these centres and which is a testimony of self-employment, dedicated hard work and commitment to save our environment.

The municipality plays a major role in encouraging recycling initiatives within the municipality with great success, and since implemented, it has created many jobs within our area.
