According to the municipality, this is an effort to address the ongoing problem of littering and illegal dumping.
RNM mayor Cynthia Mqwebu said dumping pollutes the environment and ruins the chances of the municipality being named as one the cleanest towns in the province.
The campaign will focus on four pillars:
* Education: RNM will work with community champions who will educate and assist other community members in ensuring that every town, every surburb and every village is kept clean.
* Law enforcement: RNM’s law enforcement agencies will ensure that the municipal bylaws are adhered to, in particular the integrated waste management and nuisance bylaws.
* Partnerships: RNM also plans to form partnerships with various structures including community organisations, law enforcement agencies and the private sector in order to ensure a harmonious working relationship in their pursuit to have the cleanest villages, towns and suburbs possible.
