Over three hundred volunteers came out in support of the Southernwood cleanup held by Call2Action stakeholders last week in commemoration of Mandela Day.
Mercedes Benz South Africa, DNF Waste and Environmental Services, Buffalo City Metro, and the Buffalo City Metropolitan Development Agency provided man power to tackle the scourge of waste which covered most parts of the Southernwood area.
They were joined by volunteers from the larger Southernwood community, which included businesses, NGOs, and colleges such as ELMI, Boston City Campus, and MSC Business College.
Call2Action is still working towards having recyclable waste drop-off points in Southernwood, and Oxford street and western Avenue. To find out how you can get involved, email Drayton Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org
