“The establishment of the EPWP [expanded public works programme] steering committee will ensure the implementation and constant monitoring of all waste management administration, and that waste management operations run smoothly and simultaneously,” Njilo said.

He said refuse removal will be improved and sufficient trucks and drivers will be allocated with staff rotating around the city at night and in the day.

Part of the clean-up will involve the temporary closure of the Imbali Taxi Rank for the cleaning of drainage systems, pesticide spraying and remarking of lanes on Pietermaritz­ Street where the rank is.

Uptown Ward 27 councillor Manqoba Ngubo said taxi leadership had been consulted about the closure of Pietermaritz Street from Retief to Boshoff streets.

He said some of the taxis from the Imbali rank would be temporarily based at Brookside.

“The continuous patrolling of taxi ranks will be conducted, especially eSigodini where violence and criminal activities are rife,” the mayor said.
