The 2020 Clean-Up & Recycle SA week took place from 14 – 19 September 2020, culminating in National Recycling Day on Friday, 18 September 2020 and South Africa’s 24th year of participating in the annual International Coastal Clean-Up Day which took place on Saturday, 19 September.
The world has just gone through a very hard and difficult period in our history with the COVID-19 pandemic. The participation throughout this year’s Clean-Up & Recycle SA week showed that goodness prevails.
