Take pride in the environment

Cleaning up Namibia

Walvis Bay • Leandrea Louw

The national clean-up campaign is slated for 21 September this year and Walvis Bay mayor, Alderman Immanuel Wilfred, is appealing to all residents to show their support and show up in numbers to make it a success.

“The aim is not to clean for one day of the year only; the aim is to sensitize our residents on the importance of participating in keeping our environment clean.”

The Team Up to Clean Up team has already started sharing posters online sensitizing the public about the day ahead. This year’s slogan is “Let’s change our attitude”, with the clean-up starting at 08:30 for 09:00.

Residents of the town are encouraged to clean-up right where they are: Their surrounding areas; workplace, school yard or your neighbourhood. They can send before and after photos to WhatsApp to 081 128 3675 and the best picture wins a courtesy visit with the mayor.

Municipal refuse collection will start at 12:00 on the day.

Wilfred said that littering continues to be a recurring problem in Walvis Bay. “Let’s refrain from littering, public urination and vandalism and take pride in our urban environment by keeping it clean at all times.”

During last year’s clean up by the Team Up to Clean Up team, 903 bags of rubbish were collected. About three tonnes of rubbish was picked up along the B2, the Rooibank road and Union Street in Walvis Bay.
