FRANCES Baard District Municipality will embark on a clean-up of areas in Sol Plaatje, Magareng, Dikgatlong and Phokwane municipalities this month as part of a tourism awareness campaign.
The spokesperson for Frances Baard District Municipality, Gerline Roman, said that they would be collaborating with non-governmental organisation (NGO) Live, Love, Believe and Source Point, as well as the Department of Environment and Nature Conservation, to improve the current state of cleanliness in towns.
“The clean-up campaign started yesterday in Warrenton where teams were sent out to clean and make it look more attractive and welcoming for visitors and tourists and to attract investment.
“The clean-ups will be set-up along the focal points where there is a large influx of locals, small businesses and tourists.
“NGOs will be invited to work together with the local municipalities on the clean-ups and also to create environmental awareness amongst local communities.”
Roman added that the clean-up campaign aimed to encourage local communities to keep their towns clean.
The clean-up team will be in Phokwane Municipality on September 18, at Dikgatlong Municipality on September 20 and Sol Plaatje Municipality on September 27.
