The mayor believes that this will happen when we keep our streets and neighbourhoods clean. Not only will working together help keep our neighbourhoods clean, but it will foster a community spirit that can only bode well for citizens of Joburg and the country as a whole.

The first A Re Sebetseng day was on the 30th of September and the residents of Saxonwold and Parkwood enthusiastically heeded the mayor’s call. Residents were able to pick up litter at a number of different points in the neighbourhoods and some members of the Saxonwold and Parkwood Resident’s Association (“SAPRA”) shared some lovely pictures of garbage bags that were filled to capacity with litter.

The campaign will take place on the last Saturday of every month. Pikitup provides garbage bags and gloves and they pick up the bags at designated points thereafter.

Details for the next A Re Sebetseng day are:

Date: 28 October 2017

Time 2:00-3:30pm
