The city of Cape Town says is making headways on clearing refuse backlog caused by municipal workers over the past week.

City spokesperson Kylie Hatton says the city has been able to mitigate the effect on service delivery through the co ntingency plans that have been in place all week.

“Less than 8% of refuse remains uncollected from last week's collection schedule.

“The City will follow the same refuse collection plan as it did last week. If refuse is not collected by 21:00 on the scheduled collection day this week, residents should please move their bins back inside their properties and place them out, together with any accumulation of bagged refuse, the following week on the scheduled day”, said Hatton.

Residents have been urged to assist the City during this time by not dumping waste and by not letting wet waste accumulate if not collected.
