Political parties have an extra five days to remove their election posters in Cape Town or pay a hefty per-poster fee, for the municipality to do it.
The election posters were supposed to have been down 10 days after the election, but the City had given political parties until 16 November.
Political parties would be charged R128 per poster not removed by the deadline.
This included the ties and bits used to keep the posters up.
The City of Joburg's removal fee was R1 000 per poster.
The City of Cape Town previously had a run in with the EFF on the hustings when the red berets refused to take down its giant posters.
The DA removed controversial posters it had put up in Phoenix in KwaZulu-Natal, after it was accused of race baiting.
Many of the political party posters, if carefully stored, could be used in 2024 due to them containing generic messages and party slogans.
However, many had already been snapped up by cardboard recyclers, and also used for shelter by the homeless.
