Chairman of the Adopt a Project Initiative Steve Jourdan gives the details.

WastePreneurs, a nonprofit initiative aimed at uplifting the informal waste collectors that operate throughout Johannesburg, says it has won the first part of their legal bid to remain on the property of Pirates Club in Greenside.

A lease dispute erupted after the City of Johannesburg threatened to cancel the Pirates Club lease because the club has allowed WastePreneurs to operate on the property.

Chairman of the Adopt a Project Initiative Steve Jourdan says the judgment states that the city does not have a right to evict the Pirates Club and have got to follow the due legal process in terms of the lease.

Within the Pirates lease, it states that they are to do community development, so Pirates allowed us to use a little piece of ground and the City of Joburg are claiming that they are not allowed to sublease, which in actual fact it is not a sublease...

Steve Jourdan, Chairman - Adopt a Project Initiative

The debate has been about is it a sublease, is it not a sublease and the community development role that WastePrenerus are actually playing.

The City of Joburg threatened Pirates saying if they did not evict us they were then going to cancel their lease, which was totally against the legal process that is required within the lease....none of that due process was actually followed.

It would have meant that a 110 economically viable wastepreneurs would have actually lost their jobs.
