Pikitup says it is working to restore its full services as garbage goes uncollected in parts of Johannesburg.
The waste company says it has suffered a backlog because of a failure to manage the transition of its ad hoc fleet contracts.
Pikitup Spokesperson Muzi Makhanya says the company has been working overtime to try and reduce the backlog.
Based on the progress reports that I have now, some of the depots are done with their services so I am pretty hopeful that by the weekend all the services will be restored to normal.— Muzi Makhanya, Pikitup Spokesperson
We are using both our own trucks and ad hoc vehicles to try and reduce the backlog as it were.— Muzi Makhanya, Pikitup Spokesperson
