The local towns are full of plastic bags and rubbish and there are no bins to dispose of rubbish. Kids play amongst piles of rubbish and glass and animals die from eating plastic bags.
Our partner has spoken to the Alicedale municipality and they will come and collect rubbish from bins we put up. We would like to but up bins every 20 meters around the most polluted roads in Alicedale and do a test to see if it makes a change. If this works we can expand the project into Paterson. We can invite some of the kids at Hendrik Kanisse Combined School to paint the bins with a nature theme and hopefully this will inspire the community to use and look after them.
