This is a story of 33-year-old Xolani Sikhakhane. He started an organization called Siyaphumelela waste recycling company in Orange Farm in 2013. He also says all this effort was to make Orange farm clean and habitable and to educate people to know how to separate wet waste to dry waste.  By this, he also attracted sponsors from social development and he also mentioned that other sponsors came to support the company.  This helped him to employ forty people in the organisation.

Some areas where there was litter, spaces are clean while other community members are utilising as vegetable gardens. There are a few spaces where lawns have been planted. Achieving this was a long and hard road with obstacles along the way but only through perseverance hard work and determination could some success be reached.
