The residents, frustrated by the lack of response from government authorities, took matters into their own hands. They engaged contractors to remove the dumped waste and fill a large hole in the area used by squatters.
While the work is ongoing, it has significantly improved the entrance to Meyersdal. The residents’ efforts have showcased the power of community action in addressing local issues.
