Clean-up and Recycle Week 2024

This will be the 28th year that Plastics SA will coordinate South Africa’s participation in the International Coastal Clean-up – the world’s biggest volunteer effort for ocean health.

Each year, the local plastics industry encourages citizens to make a difference where they live, work, learn or play by participating in clean-Ups around the country, throughout the year, but especially during Clean-up and Recycle SA Week – an annual public awareness week during which plastics and other litter are removed from our country’s neighbourhoods, rivers, streams, beaches and oceans.

Whether you’re joining a beach or river clean-up, organising a neighbourhood effort, or committing to recycling, every contribution counts.

What I have learned from the Cleanup experience is that even though the Cleanup started in Texas with a small number of 2,800 volunteers… it has grown into a massive cleanup that involves both national and international volunteers all pitching in for the same common goal of cleaning up our coastal waters and taking care of our beaches. I am proud to be a part of this global movement and I appreciate all of the help and support I get from the Ocean Conservancy staff.
