Delays in refuse collection service 

Residents throughout the City of Cape Town are reminded that a shortage of vehicles is causing delays in the refuse collections service. 

The City would like to assure residents that every effort is being made to clear bins on the scheduled day, and residents are asked to leave their bins out until 8pm each day until it is collected. The City will operate over the weekend to clear any backlogs as well.

The City is working with supply chain management in order to ensure that this is resolved as quickly as possible. The City apologises for any inconvenience caused.
