Maak Namibië skoon!

Die Recycle Namibia Forum (RNF) en sy lede het 'n aantal sulke veldtogte ondersteun, nie net met geborgde items nie, maar ook om die organiseerders in te lig oor hoe om 'n suksesvolle opruimingsveldtog te beplan en te organiseer.

Vermindering, hergebruik en herwinning word deur die Recycle Namibia Forum en sy lede aangemoedig. Volgens die RNF-koördineerder, me. Anita Witt, sluit al die opruimingspanne gemeenskapsleiers, verteenwoordigers van die plaaslike stadsrade, skole en ander onderwysinrigtings in.

"In 2017 het die RNF en die ministerie van die omgewing en toerisme (MET) ook kragte saamgespan vir ’n projek wat vroeër vanjaar op Kongola en Omuthiya voltooi is. By die Omuthiya-opruiming in Mei het die adjunkminister van MET, Tommy Nambahu, en die omgewingsbevelvoerder, Theofilus Nghitila, albei aan die geleentheid deelgeneem,” sê Witt.

Dit is gevolg deur 'n opruiming in die Otjozondjupastreek in Junie met die Okakarara-stadsraad, en ongeveer 400 vrywilligers wat 300 sakke rommel bymekaargemaak het.

Witt het gesê die Omaruru-gemeenskap het in Augustus 'n grootskaalse opruimingsveldtog aangebied, met 700 deelnemers wat 1 500 sakke rommel bymekaargemaak het. Dit het tot gevolg gehad dat 6 ton afval binne vier ure opgetel is.

Ook hier is die afval geskei tussen herwinbare en nie-herwinbare materiaal.

In die Suide het die Visrivier-opruimingsveldtog in September plaasgevind. Dit is deur die MET georganiseer.

Byna 40 vrywilligers het 83 kg afval by die Visrivier versamel.

"Dit is kommerwekkend dat natuurliefhebbers verantwoordelik is vir rommelstrooiing in die Visrivier met items wat wissel van gebruikte drankhouers tot gebreekte skoene," het Witt gesê.

Witt sê aan die kus is verskeie skoonmaakmiddels aangebied as deel van die jaarlikse Biodiversiteitsweek wat deur die Namibiese Kusbewaring en -bestuursprojek (Nacoma) gedurende September georganiseer is.

Kusdorpe van Lüderitz tot Hentiesbaai het aktief hieraan deelgeneem deur individuele opruimingsaksies te organiseer.

Op Swakopmund het 350 vrywilligers 187 kg herwinbare materiaal versamel, wat volgens Witt ’n aanduiding is daarvan dat die gebied van Tiger Reef af na Platz am Meer relatief skoon is.

"Die laaste geleentheid vir hierdie jaar, en moontlik die grootste opruimingsveldtog in die land, het onlangs op Ondangwa plaasgevind.

“Die sakesektor, opvoedkundige instansies en gemeenskapsleiers het almal aan die weeklikse aksies deelgeneem deur verskillende dele van Ondangwa en omgewing skoon te maak. Daar was pryse vir die suksesvolste spanne. Nagenoeg 3 500 vullissakke is gedurende die weeklikse opruiming afgehaal, wat tot 43 besoeke aan die plaaslike stortingsterrein gelei het. ’n Totale volume van 480 kg herwinbare produkte kom van die versamelde afval af,” het Witt gesê.

Me. Gloudi de Beer, voorsitter van die RNF, het met trots oor die suksesvolle jaar van opruimingsveldtogte gepraat.

"In totaal het die RNF en sy lede vrywillig hiertoe bygedra, met elke opruimingsaksie van ten minste 1 000 vullissakke van Plastic Packaging, ten minste 40 geleenthede waar koeldrank en mineraalwater verskaf is met vergunning van die Ohlthaver & List-groep deur middel van sy filiaal, Namibia Breweries Beperk (NBL), en Coca Cola Namibia, terwyl Rent-A-Drum vervoer moontlik gemaak het.”

De Beer het die RNF se uitdagings uitgelig.

"Hoewel ons aangemoedig word deur plaaslike owerhede en gemeenskappe se bereidwilligheid om te help, bly die uitdagings van afvalbestuur op die meeste dorpe 'n bron van kommer in afwagting op die implementering van die nuwe afvalbestuurwet.

“Dit verwys veral na die gebrek aan behoorlike stortingsterreine, asook die afwesigheid van herwinningsfasiliteite, en toerusting om na die naaste herwinner te vervoer. Sodra dit geïmplementeer word, moet opruimingsveldtogte volhoubaar word," het sy gesê.
