Pikitup Johannesburg (SOC) Ltd is the official integrated waste management service provider to the City of Joburg. We are mandated to provide integrated waste management services to the residents of Johannesburg. We employ more than 4500 people, using more than 200 trucks to provide refuse collection services to the City of Joburg’s private, and business residents.
Pikitup services the entire 1 625 square km that is Johannesburg, collecting around 6000 tons of waste every day. We clean and sweep approximately 9 000 kilometres of streets across the seven regions.
We are responsible for keeping our city clean, and preserving an attractive and hygienic environment for all residents, and visitors alike. We have 12 waste management depots strategically located throughout the City, 44 garden refuse sites, and four active landfill sites.
Pikitup is currently changing its strategic focus to reduce the amount of waste generated in the city. Using a community-driven approach, we are developing innovative solutions, to achieve this.
