Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality refuse collectors end strike

AUGUST 18, 2016

Expect your refuse to be collected soon, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said on Wednesday announcing the end to a strike by some of its refuse collectors.

"The strike action by some of our Waste Management employees came to an end today, which means that refuse collection for today and the rest of the week will commence as normal," the municipality said.

"However, we will not be able to catch up with the backlog this week and kindly request residents to either keep their waste or deposit it at the nearest transfer site.

"Thank you for your patience during this time!"
