Potgieter said: “We want to raise awareness for the mayor’s important initiative, A Re Sebetseng – Together, let’s make Johannesburg work towards a cleaner city.

“We signed the A Re Sebetseng pledge to work together for a cleaner city, alongside various dignitaries, including the mayor of Joburg, Herman Mashaba, CMO of McDonald’s, Daniel Padiachy, executive director of Miss Earth South Africa, and Catherine Constantinides, among others.”

In conjunction with Rietvlei Soccer School and Community Hours SA, Rietvlei Zoo Farm and Empowering You SA have pledged to host community-based clean-up campaigns every month.

TIME TO CLEAN: Thabang Radingwana and Yvonne from Okuhle Waste Management and Tandi Potgieter on Bree Street during the clean-up.

The first Rietvlei-led clean-up campaign took place on October 31 in Bree Street in the CBD. It was supported by Pikitup and Okuhle Waste Management, while McDonald’s sponsored T-shirts and lunch for all the volunteers.

“We will be focusing on the Johannesburg South area,” added Potgieter.
