ETHEKWINI NEWSFLASH
 
12 December 2017
 
For immediate release
 
Durban Solid Waste Refuse Collection Will Continue Throughout the Festive Season
 
EThekwini Municipality encourages residents to continue leaving their refuse for collection during the festive season as Durban Solid Waste (DSW) will adhere to the normal collection schedule.
 
This includes on Christmas Day, 25 December 2017 and New Year’s Day, 1 January 2018.
 
The DSW offices will be closed on 25 and 26 December 2017 and on 1 January 2018 but the operational staff will be on duty throughout the festive season providing services to eThekwini residents.
 
Residents are reminded that DSW staff are strictly prohibited from touting for money or gifts from residents. Residents are also advised to be wary of con artists posing as Municipal workers who have been known to solicit gifts.
 
Residents are urged to please take the precaution of wrapping any glass in newspaper before disposing of it in refuse bags. This will reduce the chances of injuring staff during collection.
