The Municipality Watchdog would like to request City of Johannesburg and Pikitup to appoint and protect contractors to remove waste during the strike, as it is becoming a safety hazard.
“Waste is piling up in and around the city, it is a health risk to the residents and people staying and working in the city,” the organisation’s André Pieterse said.
“We would also like to see top management of Pikitup and the City of Johannesburg intervene and to do everything in their power to bring this strike to an end.”
The city should reimburse residents and businesses for service not rendered.
