As part of the Annual Clean-up and Recycle Week currently taking place from 12-17 September 2022, the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) in partnership with Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET), Capricorn District Municipality and Polokwane Local Municipality will join hands and conduct a clean-up campaign and tree planting initiative within Polokwane Municipality.
The objective of the campaign is to highlight the importance of active citizenry in the protection and management of natural resources. Pollution in all residential areas. Most of our residential areas are also faced with a scourge of environment degradation emanating from illegal dumping.
CLEAN-UP AND RECYCLE WEEK
Environmental degradation stalls economic development, discourages investors, and negatively contributes to the health of our people. The 2022 Polokwane cleanup and recycle campaign will focus on education and awareness within our neighborhoods. Open spaces, roadsides, rivers, schools, the city of Polokwane, and illegal dumping sites.
MEC Thabo Mokone is confident that through such campaigns, we will eventually witness active citizenry in the protection and management of natural resources. Elimination of pollution in our neighborhoods and opportunities for work. Business in the environment sector through recover, re-use and also recycling of waste materials
