We received the letter below by email and consider it to be of interest to all residents of Hilton.
'After a long, hard day in the office, there is nothing better than getting home, popping on your running shoes, and with the dogs on the back of the bakkie heading out to one of the village greens and open spaces of Hilton for long walk or evening jog!
Well, this was not to be on Thursday evening 10th February 2011 as my husband and I were walking our dogs in the open areas opposite the Hilton Hotel. We watched in disgust as a white Toyota Hilux single cab pulled up onto the dirt track and an individual on the back threw one enormous bag of domestic waste after another into the veld.
We approached the individuals but before we could confront them, they very quickly covered up their number plate and sped off, obviously well aware of their illegal undertakings!
We were not to be deterred and followed them in our vehicle along the back-tracks of Hilton, determined to at least get their registration number - which we could just make out!
We hope that in catching them red-handed and following them for some distance, they will be dissuaded in the future, and we encourage the local community to be aware of and report any illegal dumping activities by phoning the 24-hour environmental crimes and incidents hotline (0800 205 005) so these matters can be followed up, and Hilton remains a beautiful place that all residents can be proud of!
