The Public Health: Waste Management Sub directorate is experiencing staff shortage on the refuse service (Refuse Carriers).
To deal with this challenge the Sub directorate approached the EPWP office in order to recruit 200 participants for Waste Management Services. The EPWP workers will resume duties on Monday, 8 July 2019.
Backlog on refuse collection will only be attended next week on the normal scheduled collection days due to budgetary constraints. There will be no contingencies or backlog done, as there is no available funding for overtime.
Residents are encouraged to make use of the nearest Drop off sites to dispose the uncollected refuse because of the non-collection this week.
The Drop off site e.g. Kragga Kamma that usually do not take domestic refuse, will make an exception this weekend or until the refuse collection service goes back to normal.
Public Health humbly apologizes for the inconvenience caused by the disruption in service.
