The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) is currently reviewing its Integrated Waste Management Plan (IWMP), which is a planning tool that will guide the Municipality’s waste management activities over the next five years and we would like you, as residents, to submit your contributions. The closing date for contributions is 17 February 2012.
Standing Committee Chairperson for Public Health, Cllr Patricia Ndlovu, said as part of the planning process, the NMBM is undertaking a Public Perception Survey to determine how residents perceive waste management in the city, what they feel the challenges are, and how they would like to see these issues addressed.
The Public Perception Survey is available online via a link on the NMBM homepage (www.nelsonmandelabay.gov.za) or you can pick up a hard copy from municipal clinics, customer care centres and libraries across Nelson Mandela Bay.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality won the coveted Cleanest City Award twice and also received the second price on several occasions since the inauguration of the awards in 2002 as a result of its proactive approach to Waste Management.
The Public Perception Survey was started on 30 November 2011.
Issued on behalf of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality by Media Management Officer Kupido Baron (082 780 2726/041 502 0000).
