Yesterday, myself and the MMC for Waste Management, Cllr. Brandon Pretorius visited various mini waste dump sites in Kempton Park and Boksburg.

The purpose of these visits was to monitor operations at the waste disposal stations to ensure that backlogs are all cleared.

The waste disposal sites visited included the Norkem Park, Dayen Glen, Attlasville, Impala Park and Lilianton sites.

Team have been working around the clock to ensure that the waste transfer and disposal system runs efficiently to avoid illegal dumping on the streets of Ekurhuleni.

I am pleased with the progress made to clear some of the dumping sites that were in disorderly state. I want to assure the residents of Ekurhuleni that we are working tirelessly to keep our City clean.

MMC Pretorius has vowed to revisit the sites to ensure smooth waste management operation and that we do not find ourselves in this same situation again.

“We are clearing all the waste disposal backlogs to return the municipal’s waste management system back to normality”, said MMC Pretorius.
