Future City Fourways cleans Fourways

Future City Fourways has taken it upon themselves to clean the city and urges community members to keep the city clean.

Future City Fourways (FCF) members have embarked on a comprehensive clean-up campaign targeting grass, trees, and litter along Witkoppen Road.

This initiative not only underscores the importance of local action but also highlights the power of collective efforts in addressing environmental challenges.

Hans Joost, the managing director of the organisation, and his team are all property owners, businesses, and residents in Fourways. They have devoted their free time to cleaning within the public space of Fourways.

“We clean and maintain the public space in the areas of our FCF members but don’t take over council services. We assist with the reporting and follow-up with infrastructure complaints such as potholes, traffic lights, water and sewer, and street lights complaints,” said Jooste.

The campaign kicked off with fervour as members of the FCF took the lead in cleaning the Witkoppen Road verge, starting from Straight Road behind the bus shelter. With a commitment to thoroughness, the FCF progressively work their way up to the garage, ensuring that every stretch of the road is free from pollution.

The FCF’s efforts have been supported by local businesses and organisations. Long Point Properties, Suzuki, and Lonehill Resident Association (LRA) recognised the importance of environmental sustainability and have taken it upon themselves to help clean the Witkoppen Road verge close to their properties.

This collaborative effort not only enhances the visual appeal of the area but also serves as a testament to corporate responsibility. Jooste, representing the organisation, emphasised the significance of community involvement in addressing environmental concerns.

“We aim to assist and serve Fourways, depending on the availability of our funding.” Future City Fourways has been on this journey and has done several cleanings within the city from Riversands, Leaping Frog, Sunrise Boulevard, streets, and verges. All the streets were cleaned, refuse and dumping were removed, and plants were donated to flower boxes at various places.
