Officials say it was a busy weekend for Durban, and as a result there was a substantial amount of litter at beaches.

The city says municipal cleaning staff have been working tirelessly to clean up the refuse. 

Mayor James Nxumalo says littering is unacceptable and is appealing to everyone to pick up after themselves and use the rubbish bins or take their waste with them to discard at home or where they are staying.

The municipality is reminding citizens that measures are being put in place to control unacceptable behaviour in future.

In terms of the Nuisance and Behaviour in Public Spaces By-Law which comes into law next year, those who litter or discard of anyother waste in public spaces will be punished.
