Durban City Clean-Up

On Sunday, 1 October 2017, a group of locals will be taking to the streets of Durban to pick up litter. PETCO is supporting this initiative and here’s why YOU should too!

The Durban City Clean-up aims to aims to attract the KwaZulu-Natal running community, local businesses and organizations to explore their city by cleaning up the city centre. This clean-up will take place exactly one week before the FNB Durban 10k CITYSURFRUN, which means the city will be squeaky-clean for runners to experience everything the City of Durban has to offer.

PETCO is thrilled to be supporting the Durban City Clean-up. We believe clean-ups have an important role to play in shifting South Africa away from a ‘take-make-dispose’ system to a circular economy by ensuring that key resources, such as PET plastic bottles, are diverted from landfill and collected for recycling. By having more people active in the recycling movement, more bottles will be collected – creating jobs and saving landfill space and carbon emissions in the process – and recycled into jeans and t-shirts, or duvets and pillows, or even into new bottles.

So make sure to join us for the Big Durban City Clean-Up!


Date: Sunday, 1 October 2017
Time: Join any time between 10am and 2pm
Venue: Durban Promenade (next to Bike ‘n Bean coffee shop)


PETCO is getting involved by donating bags and gloves for the clean-up. All the litter will be collected, sorted and recycled.
