The Waste Management Company of the City of Johannesburg, Pikitup provides a free bulky waste service to collect unwanted waste from households (e.g. old mattresses, old furniture, fridges etc.) in an effort to deal with the illegal dumping across the city.
The aim of this initiative is to divert recyclables away from the landfill sites (except for waste suitable for, and as required for use as daily cover material), thus increasing airspace and increasing the lifespan of existing landfills.
Residents who want to dispose bulky waste from their households are urged to contact their nearest Pikitup depots or use the nearest garden sites in their proximity. Once a resident has logged a call at any of the Pikitup’s depot, the responsible Depot Manager will book a call and arrange for a free-once a month bulky waste service to collect such waste.
