Pikitup pleased with rubbish collected over weekend
Pikitup says it's managed to clear most of the rubbish in Johannesburg over this weekend.
JOHANNESBURG - Pikitup says it's managed to clear most of the rubbish in Johannesburg over this weekend following a strike by its workers.
It has used the past few days to catch up on the backlog after workers downed tools over salaries and working conditions last month.
On Thursday an agreement was reached after intervention from the Gauteng Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Department.
Pikitup MD Amanda Nair says they are pleased with the progress made so far.
"The last two weeks have been a setback for us but over the weekend I hope we've restored residence's confidence in our utility."
