Plastics SA Operation Clean Up Durban
Over 1000 people flocked to Durban’s beaches on Saturday – not for fun in the sun, but for a mass cleanup following the devastating floods which hit KwaZulu-Natal during Easter Weekend.
A social media campaign calling on locals to help clean up the shoreline saw people arrive in droves to lend a hand.
Hanno Langenhoven, strategic manager for recycling at the Wildlands Trust, said the mass effort saw at least half of the mountains of waste removed from the beaches, with a specific focus on the Durban port and shores near the Umgeni River mouth.
