Kraaifontein refuse plant being neglected
THE City Council recently commissioned their new multi-million rand refuse disposal and recycling plant in Kraaifontein.
This is an essential facility. According to reports, the recycling programme has proven successful and profitable. I have been making use of this facility for my private use from its inception and find it convenient. The groundstaff are most courteous and helpful when I offload material.
It is such a pity that the managers do not appear to concern themselves with the upkeep of the premises. A manager who has pride would not allow such an essential facility to look so shabby in such a short space of time. I realise they are dealing with refuse, but that is no excuse for not keeping the perimeter and grounds clean and neat.
Avenues of newly-planted trees are suffering due to lack of watering. Port Jacksons are taking over the pavements. Waste plastic pollutes fences and roadways. One of the electronic gate’s motors is lying on the ground seriously damaged. There is a general impression of neglect.
I am convinced that the city manager would not be charmed if he conducted an inspection.
