The uMhlanga UIP has employed 22 extra people to assist with a major beach clean-up underway in uMhlanga Rocks following the severe flooding from earlier this week.

Heavy rains over a five-day period caused major flooding in KZN with rivers depositing vast amounts of plastic and natural debris into the sea which has washed up on the beaches.

Committed to keeping uMhlanga Rocks clean, the UIP currently has an extra 22 people on the ground in addition to their usual cleaning team of six. The team is working on main beach and moving south towards the city’s cleaning team.

uMhlanga UIP precinct manager says, β€œIn addition to our 28 casual and permanent staff, the public and other role-players have turned out in numbers to assist. We hope to make some headway with the mess however high tides will continue to deposit rubbish on the beach so it will take time to completely clear the beaches. We thank everyone involved for their efforts so far and look forward to working collectively to make uMhlanga Rocks beautiful again.”

Rubbish collected will be carted to skips and removed by a recycling company.
