Businesses invited to adopt an entrance

The clean-up crew is welcomed by Tinus Potgieter and Lex Gutsche of Woodlands joined Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks, Municipal Manager Charl du Plessis, Environmental Management and Waste Manager Leon Herbst and Paul Ferreira of Paul Ferreira Lawnmowing.

Woodlands Dairy and its First Choice brand have partnered with Kouga Municipality to clean up their “hood” and improve visitors' first impression of Humansdorp. 

 

Woodlands is the first business to join the "Adopt an Entrance" campaign, a project being driven by Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks. 

 

"Woodlands Dairy has basically 'adopted' the N2 entrance to Humansdorp and will be keeping the road reserve leading into the town neat and clean, " Hendricks said.

 

The initiative includes a billboard that encourages communities to “Clean Up Your Hood For Good”, a branded skip and eye-catching bins that will be used by the clean-up crew.

 

The billboard was officially unveiled by the Mayor and Woodlands CEO Lex Gutsche earlier in October.

 

Hendricks said that while the road does not fall under the municipality's jurisdiction, the Council viewed it as one of the most strategic entrances to the Kouga region. 

 

 "This stretch of road is of great importance when it comes to unlocking Kouga's full development potential. 

 

" Not only is it used by people going specifically to Humansdorp, it is also the main access route to the St Francis area while buses and motorists travelling along the N2 often turn off here for a rest stop at Humansdorp.

 

"This entrance is, therefore, many people's first impression of Kouga and has the potential to draw or scare off tourists and investors. 

 

" We are very grateful to Woodlands for recognizing this potential and being willing to go the extra mile for the greater Kouga community."

 

Tinus Pretorius, First Choice General Manager: Sales and Marketing, said First Choice was a “brand with a purpose”.

 

“We are working to minimise our impact on the environment, from farm and factory to home. We want our good movement to take off and be adopted by communities across the country in the coming years,” he said.

    

Mayor Hendricks said the project was a continuation of the "Keep Kouga Clean" initiative, launched by late Mayor Elza van Lingen last year. 

 

"She lay a solid foundation for us and I am proud that we can build on what she started."
