Disrupted Supply Of Orange Bags

EThekwini Municipality wishes to inform residents that there is currently a delay with the supply of the orange recycling bags.

This is largely due to the change in contractors manufacturing the bags. The supply of raw materials was behind schedule resulting in insufficient bags coming off the production line.

We are therefore experiencing a backlog in deliveries of the bags to households.

The Municipality is working hard to resolve the situation and restore the delivery of bags to all areas. Currently bags are being distributed as they come out of production.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
