National Clean-Up campaign to start
15 August 2019 | Environment
Participants from the National Preparatory Committee picked up litter along the Windhoek-Okahandja road while sharing information to passing motorists regarding the National Clean-Up Campaign taking place on 21 September 2019. These included Tourism Supporting Conservation Trust (TOSCO), Rent-A-Drum, Plastic Packaging and the Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology. The participants were also joined by Miss Namibia 2019, who is serving as an ambassador for the 2019 National Clean-Up Campaign.
The ministry identified roadside litter as a major problem and motorists are urged to refrain from throwing litter out of their windows.
Members of the public and all sectors of our country are encouraged to take part in major clean-up activities on that day as well as ongoing regular activities. The main goal for the 2019 campaign is to cultivate a society where all citizens take action to stop littering and shift towards best practice methods of waste management including reducing, re-using and recycling of waste.
Anyone who wants to offer support or participate in the National Clean-Up Day should contact the Ministry of Environment and Tourism or their nearest regional council.
