Miller’s Point, south of Simon’s Town has been declared a no-waste bin zone.
This as the City of Cape Town is piloting a waste management project to protect the unique coastal environment in the area.
Signs have been installed to inform visitors of the no-waste bin zone.
Areas included in the trial are:
- The picnic site,
- The public boat launch site, and,
- The tidal pool area.
The City said the site does not have any shops or commercial outlets, therefore, everything that comes into the area is brought in by the visitors themselves, and waste must be taken home with them.
If the pilot is successful, the City may consider expanding the no-waste bin zone to other remote coastal areas.
The public has been urged to participate and take responsibility for their own waste by taking it home with them.
