The road freight transport industry strike continues to affect some refuse collection services provided by City of Cape Town contractors.
City of Cape Town’s spokesperson Trevor Carroll says residents in areas which have not been serviced yet are requested to leave their wheelie bins on the kerbside until the refuse is collected.
“City staff will be doing additional collection rounds to ensure that residents’ refuse is removed as soon as possible.
“Any additional refuse which is in black bags will be removed by the contractors when they service areas next week. The City appeals to residents to please refrain from dumping the refuse,” said Carroll.
Carroll added that the City apologises for any inconvenience that residents may experience.
