PIKITUP ACTS TO RESOLVE DISPUTE AND RESUME SERVICES
The management of Pikitup presented on Wednesday, 6 April a firm proposal to SAMWU on how the current strike action can be resolved. The primary objective of Pikitup is to ensure the earliest possible resumption of refuse removal services in the interest of Johannesburg residents and businesses.
SAMWU has indicated that it will take the proposal presented to it by Pikitup back to its membership today (7 April) to receive a mandate.
While the industrial action is continuing Pikitup management is doing everything possible to resolve the issues.
To ease the pressure on residents in areas where refuse has not been collected it should be noted that four landfill sites are open and accepting domestic refuse:
- Goudkoppies — Houthammer Road, Devland
As a final resort, residents may also be able to deposit their refuse at the 42 garden sites located around the city.
For more information on the exact location of all garden sites, residents can visit the Pikitup website www.pikitup.co.za
