More partners join City of Joburg’s A Re Sebetseng campaign Print E-mail

Following last month’s launch of the City of Johannesburg’s major clean-up campaign, A Re Sebetseng, more partners are coming on board to help give Joburg a new shine.

More stakeholders are set to pledge their support for A Re Sebetseng three days before the campaign takes place again on Saturday, October 28 2017.

Tomorrow (25 October), City of Johannesburg Executive Mayor Cllr Herman Mashaba will witness the South African Council of Churches, Eyakho Environmental Forum, the Greater Johannesburg Environmental Forum, Okuhle Waste Management, the South African National Taxi Council, University of Johannesburg and the University of the Witwatersrand pledge their support of A Re Sebetseng.

Mayor Mashaba will be joined by MMC for Environment and Infrastructure Services Cllr Nico de Jager.

At the event, McDonald’s and Rosebank College will also respectively sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Pikitup. The City’s new partners will then be unleashed on the streets of Braamfontein as a prelude to Saturday’s major A Re Sebetseng clean-up campaign.

“The campaign strives to encourage residents to take 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,” says Mayor Mashaba.

Residents responded positively to the Mayor’s clarion call. A Re Sebetseng clean-up campaign takes place on the last Saturday of the month. Residents can collect bags and gloves at their nearest clinics, libraries or contact centres.

“The overwhelming success of Johannesburg’s first A Re Sebetseng clean-up campaign was not only measurable in the number of positive social media messages posted on the 30th of September 2017 but was also evident in the amount of waste collected on the day,” says the Mayor.

Below are figures indicating the amount of waste collected in the various Pikitup depot last month:
