SALGA and DEA join forces to clean up environment and change behaviour

Posted: 09 June 2016

Many municipalities have been raising concerns regarding the escalating cost of cleaning illegally dumped waste. In response, SALGA lobbied the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) to work on the development of a national awareness campaign aimed at educating communities on the need to take care of the environment and change people’s behaviours regarding waste management.

SALGA and DEA agreed to implement the project in phases, of which phase one will be targeting the motorists at filling stations. The participating garages are BP, Shell and Caltex. The City of Joburg’s waste management entity Pikitup generously provided the receptacles for the various waste types.

The first phase of this project was launched on the 13 June 2016 at BP N1 North and South as well as Shell N1 North and South. Petrol attendants are wearing branded bibs and are also handing out promotional materials with messages on antilittering and other waste related messages. 

Banners representing all stakeholders involved in the project are placed at the filling stations.

The separated recyclable material will be collected by the waste pickers who are linked to each fuel station.

In November 2015, SALGA launched anti-littering social media awareness campaign with its #LitterBugsMe campaign.

The #LitterBugsMe campaign was rolled out on social media between 10 - 11 November 2015, using clever anti-littering messages and info graphics to influence people’s behaviour to stand against littering and make littering “uncool” and undesirable.

South African public spaces are usually dirty and littered with trash due to the illegally dumped waste and most municipalities and other government institutions are continuously investing resources in trying to keep the country clean. 

While the municipalities have the authority to enforce by-laws in relation to keeping cities clean, it is not only the responsibility of government to ensure that the country is clean but for everyone.
