Refuse removal is a problem


Vehicle break-downs and slow repairs are to blame for the non-rendering of refuse removal services in the Govan Mbeki municipal area.
These problems, according to Bheki Kubheka, senior manager in the office of the municipal manager and acting head of communications and marketing, have caused an enormous backlog for the municipality.
“The municipality would like to offer its sincere apology to the community of Govan Mbeki Municipality
“We are working around the clock to address the backlog with very limited trucks and to date we have removed 50% of the waste throughout the municipality with the target of achieving 100% by the end of the week.”
Bheki said if this target can be reached by the end of the week, the refuse removal teams can resume the normal schedule of collection.
“We thank the community for their patience during this time.”
