Refuse removal in Witpoortjie has been delayed, leaving the residents very angry.
Sandy Walker said, “It’s been over a week since my waste was last collected.”
A spokesperson for Pikitup, Muzi Mkhwanzi, said, “The Witpoortjie schedules are behind, mainly because of the breakdown of trucks. This affects the pick-up timetable and causes delays. Trucks are currently undergoing maintenance and it’s only a matter of time until things go back to normal again.”

Mkhwanzi also said, “Normally there is only a day’s delay in the pick-up timetable – it’s hardly ever longer than that. If pick-ups are not done for more than a week, it’s mostly due to a strike.”
