Delay in Cape Town refuse collection

The City of Cape Town says residents who live in areas serviced by the Collections Depots in Mitchell's Plain and Woodstock can expect delays in their refuse collection over the coming days.
The Mitchell's Plain Collections Depot closed on Wednesday, 20 May 2020, and the Woodstock Collections Depot was closed since Monday, 18 May.
This comes after two staff members have tested positive at the Woodstock Collections Depot and one staff member has tested positive at the Mitchel'ls Plain Collections Depot.
The City of Cape Town says two of the staff were office-based, and one staff member was part of the refuse removal crew. It added that as a result of the positive cases of COVID-19, the facilities will remain closed for approximately three days until deep cleaning and disinfecting have been completed. This includes disinfecting the facilities and vehicles.
Those who have been in close contact with the staff members are self-quarantining.
The City Council says services in affected areas should be able to resume from next week.
Residents who live in the affected areas are requested to bring their bins back onto their properties, and only bring them out on the next scheduled removal day.
The City says excess refuse that cannot fit in the wheelie bins can be bagged and placed next to the bin for removal.
