Pikitup, the City of Johannesburg’s waste management entity, would like to advise Joburg residents and business owners that refuse will be collected on all public holidays except on Christmas Day, Tuesday 25 December 2018. There will not be refuse collection on Christmas Day.
Residents whose scheduled waste collection day falls on Christmas Day are advised to keep their refuse bins inside their properties and place them outside on Tuesday, 1 January 2019, for collection. Here is the Pikitup schedule below:
|DATES||REFUSE COLLECTION||COLLECTION OF RECYCLABLE MATERIALS||COLLECTION OF BULK WASTE||GARDEN SITES||LANDFILL SITES||COMMERCIAL SERVICES|
|16 DECEMBER 2018 (SUNDAY)||Yes, Only in the Inner City||NO||NO||YES, Pikitup staff until 12h00||YES ALL||Yes, as per schedule|
|17 DECEMBER (MONDAY)||YES, ALL AREAS||YES, only in scheduled areas||NO||YES, Pikitup staff until 12h00||YES||Yes, as per schedule|
|25 DECEMBER (TUESDAY)||NO||NO||NO||NO||NO||NO|
|26 DECEMBER (WEDNESDAY)||YES||YES, only in scheduled areas||NO||YES, Pikitup staff until 12h00||YES, ALL||Yes, as per schedule|
|1 JANUARY (TUESDAY)||YES||YES, only in scheduled areas||NO||YES, Pikitup staff until 12h00||YES, ALL||Yes, as per schedule|
Pikitup is also appealing to residents to refrain from giving its employees Christmas gifts. Employees of the City of Johannesburg’s waste management entity are barred from asking for gifts from residents.
Pikitup discourages residents from giving employees gifts because criminals also use this to their advantage. As a result, several bogus Pikitup employees were arrested on charges of fraud and misrepresentation during the 2017 festive season.
