The campaign also raised awareness among residents about the ill-effects of littering and illegal dumping.

MEMBERS of Joburg City Parks and Zoo's (JCPZ's) executive and management team joined other staff members in a Mega Blitz clean-up in Region C on Monday, 10 November.

JCPZ Managing Director Bulumko Nelana was among those who donned overalls and gloves and joined in the tree pruning, grass trimming and general litter clearing in the north-west parts of the City.

The campaign was aimed at curbing the ongoing vagrancy, littering of the City's greenbelts, and massive illegal dumping along Malibongwe Drive where it intersects with President Fouche Drive.

Also participating were members of the Joburg Metro Police Department, SA Police Service and Department of Home Affairs, while Pikitup was on hand to remove garbage and provide residents with refuse bags.

Monday's clean-up followed a similar operation conducted in the City's southern suburbs over the weekend, involving the South of Joburg Business and Tourism organisation, City Parks and other stakeholders.

The campaign focused on Kliprivier Road between Rifle Range and Turf Club Street in Turffontein, and as with the Region C Mega Blitz it also provided residents with environmental health education and encouraged them to refrain from littering and dumping waste illegally.
