On 18 November 2020 Pristine Earth Collective and The Litterboom Project met with City of Cape Town officials from a number of different departments to discuss illegal dumping in our city. Representatives from Solid Waste, Canals and Stormwater, Water & Sanitation, Informal Sector Infrastructure and Green Jobs came together with open and collaborative attitudes to enlighten PEC to the challenges they face in tackling this pervasive issue.
Various possible solutions to help reduce illegal dumping were tabled and discussed from different perspectives. The experience and insights shared by these dedicated civil servants were invaluable in helping PEC and TLP formulate a multi-pronged action plan to begin tacking illegal dumping. PEC is deeply grateful to all who participated for their time and constructive inputs as we formulate illegal dumping projects on our upstream journey to tackle plastic pollution.
