Waste collection resumes as strikers return to work

WASTE collection across affected parts of eThekwini have resumed and striking Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP) staff have returned to work.

EThekwini Municipality announced on Wednesday that that workers from the Cleaning and Solid Waste Unit will be collecting waste in areas whose waste collection day is today (Wednesday).

Once this is completed they will work to address the backlog by collecting waste that was scheduled to be collected on Monday and then proceed to collect waste that was due to be collected on Tuesday in affected areas.

Residents are encouraged to take their waste out even if their collection day has passed as staff will be working hard to address the backlog caused by the strike.

However, the public must note that EPWP workers contracted to the Outer West Region have embarked on strike action. Negotiations are ongoing to resolve the issue. Affected areas include Kloof,

Cato Ridge, Monteseel, Hammarsdale, Gillitts, Hillcrest Centre, Crestholme and Inanda Road. Action is being taken with a contingency plan in place to address the backlog.
