Rubbish collection on Women's Day


REFUSE will be collected as a usual on the public holiday, Women's Day, on Monday, 9 August.

"The public holiday in celebration of Women's Day will not affect Pikitup's schedule," said Pikitup's spokesperson, Pansy Jali Oyedele.

Residents are asked to take out their bins for collection as early as 7am.

Women's Day commemorates the national march of women in 1956 to petition against apartheid legislation that required black women to carry identification documents, or the hated dompas.

All garden sites will be open on the day for the disposal of garden refuse and recyclable materials only. Landfill sites that will be open are Robinson Deep, Marie Louise, Goudkoppies, Ennerdale and Panorama Composting Plant.
