No refuse collections for Mitchell’s Plain

The solid waste depot servicing Mitchelll’s Plain and Strandfontein was closed for deep cleaning after an employee tested positive for Covid-19. 
Ward 75 councillor Joan Woodman says this means there will be no refuse removal for Mitchell’s Plain and Strandfontein until next week. 
Strandfontein councillor, Elton Jansen said the City was unable to allocate resources from other depots because two other facilities have also been closed after staff tested positive for the virus. 
“All vehicles will need to be sanitized, and a way forward regarding operations will be mapped out in the coming days,” he said.
