A re sebetseng! Clean up! Campaign clean up Morningside Shopping Centre

Morningside Shopping Centre in Johannesburg was the focus for the A re sebetseng! Clean up! Campaign on October 28.

Morningside Shopping Centre will be the gathering point for the next A re sebetseng! Clean up! Campaign – a monthly volunteer initiative created by Executive Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, Councillor Herman Mashaba.

The campaign is on the move throughout the city and residents are invited to play a role in cleaning up their neighbourhoods and be part of a positive change towards a more beautiful Joburg for everyone.

On Saturday 28 October, Ward 103 volunteers met at Morningside Shopping Centre, outside Tashas at 9am to clean up Rivonia Road until 11am.

“As we band together as a community, we recognise that even the smallest actions can make a lasting impact,” says Ward 103 Councillor Vincent Earp.

The campaign already notched up a string of successes with Ward 103 having collected over 40 bags of litter on September 28.

“A re sebetseng! Clean up! is about so much more than simply removing litter from our streets. It creates a space for residents to join forces, take pride in our environment and be part of the solution,” says Earp.

As part of the campaign, the City of Johannesburg provides bags and gloves, but volunteers are asked to bring any other tools they may find useful such as spades, rakes and yard brooms.

Morningside Shopping Centre manager, Sharon Henry says the centre is delighted to be part of the new clean-up initiative. “As a part of the community, Morningside Shopping Centre is proud to lend its support to ensuring our neighbourhood looks as neat and attractive as possible.”
