Waste: backlog causes delays

2011-05-12 00:00

DESPITE promises by the Msunduzi Municipality of a massive waste removal operation over the weekend, some city residents were still left with piles of rubbish yesterday.

An apologetic Msunduzi spokesman, Brian Zuma, said the reason some areas were left out was that the backlog took longer to clear up than they anticipated.

The Municipality asked for details of refuse collection rounds to be published for the convenience of ratepayers.
