REFUSE COLLECTION UPDATE: 09/07/2020- 16:02
Apparently the refuse was removed today (9 July 2020) according to schedule, but once again lack of communication by the Municipality to Councillors prevented us from relaying the message to all.
I have consulted with an Official from the Municipality a few minutes ago and it was confirmed that refuse will be collected tomorrow (10 July 2020) in areas where refuse collection usually takes place according to the normal schedule.
Cllr Ward 25
REFUSE COLLECTION UPDATE: 08/07/2020- 17:53
NO REFUSE REMOVAL FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK
CITY residents have been advised that there will be no refuse collections for the remainder of this week.
Refuse was also not collected on Wednesday.
Municipal spokesperson, Thoko Riet, stated that workers were awaiting feedback regarding their outstanding overtime money.
“A payment plan was due to be presented to the workers on Wednesday but the Chief Financial Officer was not available to present it,” she stated.
“This will be treated as a matter of urgency so that refuse collection can resume as normal.
“We regret the inconvenience.”
