The City of Johannesburg’s Executive Mayor, Cllr Herman Mashaba, together with community leaders and various stakeholders, launched a monthly cleanup volunteer campaign on 14 August 2017 at the Yeoville Recreation Centre, to encourage the reduction of grime and litter within Johannesburg.
The campaign will seek to unite residents within the City to work together with government and skilled stakeholders in ensuring that Johannesburg becomes clean.
Monthly clean-ups will be held on the last Saturday of every month.
The City had initiated increased services within Pikitup, the City entity which provides cleaning services, which is starting to prove successful. The largest component of this campaign will focus on cleaning the City, to position it as a job-creating investment and a City which its residents can be proud to call home.
The campaign will also strive to encourage residents to take better care of the environment by promoting a culture of reducing, re-using and recycling waste in ensuring that Johannesburg becomes one of the cleanest cities in Africa.
