Our photographer visited Hennops River to document the clean up operation.

More than 300 bags of recyclables were removed from a poly island which acts as a natural litter trap in the Hennops River in Centurion.

The Hennops Revival organisation, along with other volunteers, removed about 330 bags from the poly island, of which 150 bags were just bottles and the remaining 180 bags of polystyrene.
