LEPHALALE — Saturday was the first in a series of cleaning operations initiated by individuals and business people in Lephalale. Although there were quite a lot of people at the founding meeting, the turnout for the cleaning action was disappointing.
Kaefer Energy provided trucks, gloves, garbage bags and cold water to quench the thirst of those who took to the streets in the heat of the day. They started at Lephalale Square, heading for Eckard Street around the corner to Breë Street and then the entire Jan Lee Street.
KAEFER is an international company with headquarters in Bremen, Germany, and is currently working in more than 50 countries around the world with more than 16,000 employees. KAEFER was established at Medupi Power Station for Insulation and Scaffolding work in 2009 and currently employs over 2 000 employees. Therefore, KAEFER Energy feels like part of the community and wants to deal with local businesses to make Lephalale one of the cleanest towns in the country. They thank everyone who attended Saturday’s clean up.
The next clean up action is Saturday, 13 October from Lephalale Mall and again on 20 October at Lephalale Crossing. It starts at 14:00.
There is a serious appeal to the community to help to improve the merit of the town. It is in everyone’s interest.
An urgent appeal is being made to community members to reconsider littering everywhere and to develop a pride to be part of this town. A suggestion was made that big companies can permanently appoint and pay people for ongoing clean-up operations.
