The Solid Waste Section of the Walvis Bay municipality has started with additional cleaning programmes, which takes place every Friday.

Two major cleaning operations involving community members are being planned. The first mass clean-up operation will take place in September and more information about this initiative will be shared soon.

Mayor Immanuel Wilfred urged the community of Walvis Bay to organised themselves in teams be it schools, companies, youth groups or churches and to contact the Solid Waste Section to participate in the project.

“All citizens have an obligation to keep the city clean and play a role in this regard,” he said.
