refuse in and around the city-centre is cleared within 24 hours. We are also prioritising refuse that is life threatening. We have also hired contractors to assist us in our endeavour to provide water 24/7," said Nzuza.
EThekwini is appealing to all residents not to take out their refuse until the strike is officially declared over. Residents are implored to dispose of their garbage at the following landfill sites which are Mariannhill, Ilovu and Buffelsdraai.
Residents are assured that tap water is very safe to drink and are requested to disregard hoax messages that are circulating on social media to the contrary.
The City urges all its employees to resume their duties immediately while the labour dispute is being deliberated upon at the central bargaining council. The principle of no work no pay applies to all workers participating in the strike.
