CITY BUYS FOUR NEW WASTE TRUCKS
The City of Ekurhuleni is geared up to address waste removal services bottlenecks across the region. This follows the purchase of 12 new waste trucks, four of which were released this morning.
Eight more trucks will be delivered in July.
The City has budgeted R40 million for the replenishment of the waste fleet. The new vehicles will include 10 rear-end loaders and two front-end loaders.
Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Environment Resources and Waste Management Services Cllr Eunice Matloga says the City is on course to normalize waste removal services.
“We have purchased these waste trucks in order to address the backlog of waste removal in the City and also to strengthen our internal resources so as to reduce the reliance on service providers,” said MMC Matloga.
