Refuse removal will continue uninterrupted on the day of local government elections, with Pikitup doing its usual rounds.
PIKITUP will follow its usual refuse removal schedule tomorrow, which has been declared a national public holiday so that people can get to the polls.

South African citizens vote in local government elections on Wednesday, 18 May.

But Pikitup services will not be disrupted. These include normal weekly household waste collection and daily wet waste removal from restaurants.

“Street sweeping services in the inner city will also continue as normal,” said the utility’s communication manager, Pansy Oyedele.

Joburg’s 42 garden sites will also be open until 1pm, for disposal of garden and recyclable waste.

However, residents are advised to take their bins out as early as 7am. For more information about refuse collection, contact Joburg Connect on 011 375 5555.
