Clean up the mess
Jill Lobaard letter

Jill Lombaard, Welkom:

A very big thank you to the residents of the Agulhas Street town houses for cleaning up the “rubbish dump” at the corner of Buren Street and Arrarat Road, just before Christmas.

I hope that the people that dumped their rubbish on this site are feeling embarrassed that others had to clean up their mess.

I have lived in Welkom for 67 years and was always proud to say that I lived in a beautiful Garden City as was the idea of Sir Ernest Oppenheimer, when Welkom was planned.

Over the last 20 years I have become more and more discouraged to see how our beautiful city is going to the dogs and “pigs” who just litter everywhere and dump their rubbish, with no respect to anyone else.

I hope that the people dumping their rubbish will be severely punished in the future.

Let us start the new year with taking back our Garden City by respecting others.

  • Unfortunately not even a week after the cleanup the dumping started again. What do people think when they dump their rubbish on an open space?

Are they not proud of where they live, or do they come from another side of town?

I am ashamed of what our city looks like. I have never had to live in a “pigsty” before.

What do out of town people think of our beautiful Garden City now?
