Residents on a mission to clean up Bayview

Some of the role-players and community leaders who are passionate about a clean and healthy environment.

Bayview residents have adopted a proactive approach in cleaning up their community, which is riddled with litter and quickly becoming a health hazard.

The area of concern is in the vicinity of the Bayview SAPS and has become an illegal dumping ground. Various community members togher with the Bayview police force and law enforcement officer, Don Baijnath conducted a walk-about to determine the severity of the problem, recently.

Baijnath assessed the extent of the pollution and said, “It is evident that many residents have no respect for the law or the environment. The area has heaps of household garbage, building material and alcohol bottles. In addition to this, a box of kittens were also found in the area.”

Baijnath reiterated that illegal dumpers would be found and issued fines of R5, 000.

“I also hope that this sets an example for others as a way for them to mindful about the environment. Bayview is a beautiful community and most of the residents do their bit to keep the environment clean, however, there are only about 10 percent of the residents, who have no regard for the wellness of the community.”

Other residents have also issued complaints about dumping in their areas, which will be looked into since illegal dumping is being taken extremely serious in the Chatsworth community. 

To report dumping crimes, contact Don Bajinath on 031 322-6066.
