UMlazi Township Refuse Collection Disruption
 
The City would like to urge residents of Umlazi Township to keep refuse within their premises. This is due to the disruption of refuse collection sparked by circumstances beyond both the city and the contractor’s control. The city is currently meeting with the contractor to come up with a solution in this regard.
 
As a temporary measure, eThekwini has since mobilised its internal resources to collect refuse that is already along the streets.
 
The municipality will inform all residents as soon as the normal refuse collection resumes.
 
The City apologises for the inconvenience caused.
