good deeds replace

 

Employees of the Economic Development Department rolled up their sleeves and heeded a call by the President to clean-up the streets of Sunnyside, Pretoria, as part of the launch of the Good Green Deeds Programme on 8 March 2019.

 

As the President, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, was officially launching the Good Green Deeds Programme in Mdantsane, Eastern Cape, at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium, on 8 March 2019, EDD employees were doing their part in contributing to the campaign by cleaning up the streets of Sunnyside, Pretoria.                        

The Good Green Deeds Programme is aimed at changing behaviour towards littering, illegal dumping, and waste management in general. The Programme is part of government's commitment to clean South Africa, to make our cities, towns and rural areas places where it is safe and healthy for all to live.

 

Collected waste material was transported by a municipal truck and offloaded at an appropriate landfill site, from where it will later be recycled and re-used and ultimately contribute to the development of the Circular Economy. A Circular Economy aims to ensure that consumption of resources is optimised in a way that redefines growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits.
