Ground-breaking Partnership to Improve Solid Waste Management Services

On Friday, 10 October 2014, the Department for Corporative Governance (DCoG) in partnership with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), will sign a Memorandum of Understanding to support the Mahikeng Local Municipality in improving solid waste management services.

This year-long pilot partnership seeks to step up efforts to address, support and complement interventions to improve the situation of waste management of the Mahikeng Local Municipality.

Section 24 of The Constitution guarantees everyone the right to an environment that is not harmful to their health or well-being. As municipalities go back to basics, they have a responsibility to provide all sections of society with clean and safe environment.

The signing of the MOU will take place as follows:

Date: 10 October 2014

Venue:  DCoG offices in 87 Hamilton Street, Arcadia, Pretoria

 Time: 09:00 – 12:00
