The spokesper­son for Frances Baard District Mu­nic­i­pal­ity, Ger­line Ro­man, said that they would be col­lab­o­rat­ing with non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion (NGO) Live, Love, Be­lieve and Source Point, as well as the De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Na­ture Con­ser­va­tion, to im­prove the cur­rent state of clean­li­ness in towns.

“The clean-up cam­paign started yes­ter­day in War­ren­ton where teams were sent out to clean and make it look more at­trac­tive and wel­com­ing for vis­i­tors and tourists and to at­tract in­vest­ment.

“The clean-ups will be set-up along the fo­cal points where there is a large in­flux of lo­cals, small busi­nesses and tourists.

“NGOs will be in­vited to work to­gether with the lo­cal mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties on the clean-ups and also to cre­ate en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness amongst lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

Ro­man added that the clean-up cam­paign aimed to en­cour­age lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to keep their towns clean.
