Rosebank Killarney Gazette – 17th January 2019

Members of the Green Team Wallington Chisale, Brandon Kamsela, directors of Vision Tactical Yaseen Theba and Feroz Essay, and Abdulla Nazeel get ready to clean up the neighbourhood.

Following a number of calls from the public complaining about illegal dumping across the Houghton area, Vision Tactical security service launched their Green Team initiative.

The Green Team has employed four full-time workers to clean up the areas of Houghton, Killarney, Norwood and surrounding areas.

With the aim to build an unpolluted and safe environment while driving sustainable change, the Green Team hopes to increase their visibility in the area to drive environmental awareness.

Director of Vision Tactical Yaseen Theba said, “While we may not have a solution to stop illegal dumping, we felt that it’s our responsibility to assist the municipality with initiatives like this so that we can keep our public spaces clean.”

Theba said that the team, who wears green overalls, is equipped with sufficient tools and gear to clean up the area.

“We encourage our clients, the community and businesses in the area to support and volunteer towards the initiative. We believe it’s a win-win for everyone to be involved,” said Theba.

They wish to thank Freeway Toyota, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, ER24, AL’s Hardware and many other partners for their collaboration and support. The Green Team is associated with the Lower Houghton Residents Association and the Killarney Residents Association. They have also received the support of Ward 73 Councillor Eleanor Huggett and director of Region E Liziwe Ntshinga-Makoro.
