Municipality Cleaning the Brooklets

Municipality Cleaning the Brooklets. On Wednesday, 12 July, municipal workers were seen picking up filth in the Smith Street brooklet.

When the Excelsior News spoke to the workers, they had already filled two large bags and were still hard at work to clean up the rest. The workers said that they started by cleaning up the garbage at the bridges in town. They had cleaned up one bridge already on Tuesday and had another to clean on Thursday.

The pollution in the brooks are a big problem in Mkhondo that many people would like to see addressed. There have been schools in the past who cleaned up the brooklets, but it seems the garbage is thrown into the brooks faster than people can pick it up. The continuation of this problem shows that there are people who do not want to take care of their town.

A report was received on Friday that a man was deliberately dumping his waste in the brooks. This type of behaviour is unacceptable. Shame on you! It seems that the majority of the pollution comes from people who are impatient and do not want to wait a few days for the municipality to collect their garbage.

Rather than driving to the waste site themselves, they opt to simply dump their rubbish in the brooks. Thank you to the municipality for making the effort to keep our brooks clean. Residents are asked to keep their waste until the municipality picks it up on the designated days. Should you need to get rid of your waste before then, please take your garbage to the waste site where it can be dealt with in the appropriate manner.
