The Administration staff of the Roads Services in George colluded through contributing money among them to spoil 100 children with nice goody packets.  The packets contained a muffin, cool drink, sweets, chips and an orange.   These packets were distributed in Maraiskamp, a small neighborhood in George.  Children were delighted, running from all around, not to miss out on this occasion.  The official challenge for the 2015 Madiba day is to spoil at least 300 children with something nice to eat.

Prevent used motor oil pollution PDF Print
Friday, 18 July 2014

In an effort to prevent used motor oil pollution, the Eden District Waste Management section engaged with Recycling Oil Saves the Environment Foundation (ROSE) and National Oil Recycling Association of South Africa (NORA SA), in collaboration with the following local municipalities: Bitou, Knysna, Mossel Bay, George, Oudtshoorn and Hessequa. Emerging from the engagement it was decided that containers (Enviro Centre facilities) be placed at specific waste disposal sites where the public has access to dispose of used motor oil and oil filters free of charge. Approximately 270 million litres of new oil is sold per year in South Africa, but approximately only a recorded 100 million litres of the used oil is recycled.
