Knysna-Plett Herald - - Voorblad - Yo­lan­dé S­tan­der

The P­let­ten­berg Bay C­ri­me Pre­ven­ti­on As­so­ci­a­ti­on (PBCPA) is of­fe­ring a R1 000 re­ward for in­for­ma­ti­on that le­ads to the ar­rest of a lo­cal van­dal.

O­ver the past month, se­ver­al rub­bish bins ha­ve mys­te­ri­ous­ly go­ne up in fla­mes and been de­stroy­ed.

The bins are part of the Keep P­lett C­le­an cam­paign, which is an i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve star­ted by con­cer­ned lo­cals wor­king with the Bi­tou Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty to keep the town ne­at and tidy. As part of the i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve they ha­ve stra­te­gi­cal­ly pla­ced se­ver­al of t­he­se bins a­round town to en­coura­ge lo­cals and vi­si­tors not to lit­ter.

The cos­ts of t­he­se bins are co­ve­r­ed by the mem­bers them­sel­ves and do­na­ti­ons from the pu­blic and bu­si­nes­ses in town.

Ac­cor­ding to A­li­son Bry­ant of the Keep P­lett C­le­an cam­paign, t­he­se bins ha­ve sy­s­te­ma­ti­cal­ly been set a­lig­ht and de­stroy­ed o­ver the past month.

The PBCPA has sin­ce of­fe­red a R1 000 re­ward for in­for­ma­ti­on a­bout the incidents in an at­tempt to ap­pre­hend the cul­prit.
