The SBID team is building on the good relationships with the local municipal officials responsible for solid waste management to ensure a clean and litter free CBD area.

The Team Leader from Solid Waste Cleansing , Mr Mxolisi Witness Mtyabatiso, is doing an excellent job in the area, especially to secure that defective green litter bins are repaired, replaced or added in high-litter areas.

The SBID team continuously alerts the City of Cape Town about defects in the urban environment of the Strand central improvement area whilst being on their daily patrols. Defects to the urban environments are reported and repaired on a daily basis in the area.

After months of hard work to gain support and submit an application to the City of Cape Town for establishment, the Strand Business Improvement District (SBID) will take its first few steps on 15 October 2014. The City of Cape Town approved the SBID application on the 29th of May 2014. Given this approval the SBID had to comply with a number of administrative requirements in order to become operational.
