No holiday break for Pikitup; working to keep Joburg clean


The City of Johannesburg’s waste management services’ operations will continue on public holidays (16, 26 December 2014 and 1 January 2015) during the festive season.

All street cleaning activities and garden sites services will operate as normal throughout the festive period with the exception of Christmas and New Year’s Day.

However, there will be no street cleaning and refuse collection in the inner city on New Year’s Eve (31 December 2014).

According to Pikitiup, this decision was made to ensure the safety of its workers due to potentially violent behaviour by revelers ushering in the new year.

In light of this move, street cleaning will take place in the inner city (Hillbrow and adjacent areas) only on 1 January 2015, the municipal entity said.
