The City of Cape Town is embarking on a clean-up campaign this season, #SpringCleanCT, and has set up a 24-hour toll-free hotline for residents to report illegal dumping and other by-law infringements.
CITY WANTS RESIDENTS TO REPORT ILLEGAL DUMPING
The City of Cape Town encouraged residents to write down the vehicle license plate number and report it whenever they witness illegal dumping.
Offenders could be fined up to R5000, have their vehicle impounded or even be imprisoned for two years.
“For every fine and conviction, there are potential rewards available from R1000 up to R5000,” said the City.
Cape Town resident, Riaan Delport, received his reward on Tuesday, 13 September, after he reported an illegal dumping incident in Du Noon. Delport saw a truck discarding rubble and reported it in July.
“Cleaning up Cape Town requires all of our efforts and we encourage residents to come forward like Mr Delport did – and they can do so anonymously as well,” said the City.
“It is within our ability to change the culture of litter and dumping in Cape Town. We are calling on residents, schools, businesses, and community groups to join the #SpringCleanCT campaign.”
Members of the public can report illegal dumping via the hotline at 0800-110-077 or by email at [email protected]. To notify the City of dumping that needs to be cleared dial 0860-103-089.
