For Immediate Release
 
RE: Orange Recycling Bags
 
The Kerbside recycling programme is still running in the buyback / drop off centres around the city, however there is a challenge of the supply of orange bags which is due to the delays in the procurement processes.  DSW is currently awaiting finalisation of the SCM processes, prior to commencement of the orange bag supply to the residence.
 
Communication will be sent to all residents once the orange bags are available. We still encourage all our citizens to continue with the recycling and we wish to apologise to all affected citizens who are passionately involved with recycling for the inconvenience caused.

The case involving irregularities has been handed over to the Financial Misconduct Committee and we await their findings.
