The GSCID  cleaning operations, managed and undertaken by Straatwerk ‘Ophelp Projekte’, remain steady and effective staffed by a manager and six teams of three cleaners each operating out of our Durban Road Depot from 08h00 to 12h00 Mondays to Saturdays. Each cleaner earns R55.00 per day and is recruited from the homeless and jobless within our area.

Operating along and adjacent to the Main Road from the Campground Road intersection in Claremont to Anzio Road in Observatory in the red area of the map overleaf they keep the public space, mainly the pavements, drains and roads in our area clean.

In autumn they may be seen delving into the drains cleaning out the blockages of leaves etc. before the onset of winter. They also keep these areas free from graffiti.

Of particular significance in addition to their cleaning operations, they provide an important job creation function offering basic remunerative work to the homeless in our areas of operation.

The annual cleaning statistics below for the period July 2014 to June 2015 provide examples of the scope of work undertaken by Straatwerk.
