JOHANNESBURG - Pikitup has embarked on a clean-up campaign at the Zandspruit informal settlement in Randburg.

The Northern Joburg community has been affected by illegal dumping sites.

Pikitup's Amanda Nair says community members have come out in their numbers to help clean up the area.

"We had a very successful turnout. Lots of the areas have been cleared and we have identified those areas as potential food gardens as well as areas which we are now going to designate as legal dumping spots."
