I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use. – Mother Teresa

The 3rd of June marked my community clean up in Vaaloewer. The landfill site has been a problem for many years due to the lack of funding and poor management. This has resulted in a serious impact on the receiving environment. With the help from the community members, we cleaned the fields surrounding the landfill site. The local Municipality, Emfuleni Municipality, took all the waste collected from the fields to Vanderbijlpark’s local landfill site.

By doing this project made me realize that many hands make light work and that we as should start working together as communities to create change.


Remember to be the change you want to see in the world.
