A group of St Andrew’s College boys volunteered to pick up litter as a service activity for Mandela Day. We tackled the commonage near the dump, where litter blows from the dump and where rubbish is illegally dumped. The boys made a noticeable difference to the area in the 67 minutes that they spent clearing up.
The group also spoke about ecobricks, stuffing plastic into bottles instead of throwing it into a bag that will end up on the dump, which can greatly reduce the plastic that blows about. If every household and dorm did this, the litter problem – and the volume of waste on the dumpsite – would be greatly reduced.
