CLEAN up clean up everybody everywhere . . . Clean up clean up everybody do your share.

A regionally clean-up campaign of a different kind is in full swing – for the third year.

Kouga residents once again can get rid of their unwanted items and goods they have at home that cannot be put out for standard refuse collection.

“The project dubbed ‘Coca-Maak Skoon’ – which is the isiXhosa and Afrikaans words for cleaning up – forms part of the ongoing Keep Kouga Clean Campaign that kicked-off on October 31 and will come to an end on November 25,” said Community Services Portfolio Councillor, Daniel Benson.

This after the very successful secondCoca-Maak Skoon initiative at the beginning of the year.

According to Benson, items and goods include electronic waste and even old furniture.

“The only things that are excluded are food – as we do not want to attract scavengers – as well as garden refuse and builders’ rubble,” he said. “Old food should be put out in wheelie bins on the days usually reserved for refuse collection, while all garden refuse and builders’ rubble must be taken to the respective landfill sites.

“We urge that residents only take out materials on the day advertised for collection in their area. Once the truck has moved away from a specific area, do not put anything on the pavement.”

Benson said the campaign started off in the Gamtoos Valley on Monday, October 31. This will be followed by Humansdorp, the Greater St Francis Area, and Jeffreys Bay.
