Waste m​anagement ​
mw.jpg​Every day you will spot a Pikitup truck stopping next to a kerb to empty a collection of black wheelie bins. This is just one of Pikitup’s fleet that covers the entire 1 625km² of the city, collecting and disposing of some 1,4 million tons of domestic waste generated every year.​

As the City’s official waste management service provider, it is Pikitup’s responsibility to keep the city clean and hygienic.

Pikitup does this by collecting household refuse once a week from every formal dwelling in Johannesburg. It also offers commercial services to some 17 000 businesses and provides a waste removal service to all informal settlements in the city.
