Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

What is it about places being abused as dumps and toilets just because they appear abandoned?

Instead of utilising these spaces for the community, some lazy people bring down the entire neighbourhood by dumping, and I’m not just referring to waste, but also literally shit.

27 Greatmore Street has turned into a health hazard with rat, cockroach and fly infestations, and a fire hazard with all the rubbish piling up.

27 Greatmore Street is a dump and toilet: Full of waste and feces.

We’ve had enough of the City of Cape Town and the owner Mr Allie dodging responsibility:

In South Africa, if you want something done, you best take care of it yourself, it seems.

We’ve been regularly trying to keep Woodstock clean: Every bin day I collect all rubbish flying around our hood until our bin is full.
But it takes more: We also do bigger cleanups a couple of times a year.

This one was a major cleanup, in 2 days’ work we collected about 60 rubble bags full of waste.

And we’re nowhere near clearing the abandoned plot: Over the years of neglect, about 2m of rubble and rubbish accumulated, posing serious damage to the surrounding houses through rising damp.

Woodstock Cleanup: It takes personal initiative to get Woodstock clean.

Well, the worst is done – for now.

Hopefully by securing and watching the abandoned plot, it won’t get so bad again.

Now we need more bags to continue!
