Residents are asked to please bear with us as COVID-19 mitigation measures, especially in the case of a confirmed infection amongst our staff, will have an impact on service delivery from time to time. The City has contingencies in place to ensure that operations and service delivery continue as far as possible, while ensuring the health and safety of our staff during this time, as well as the health and safety of the public we serve.
The City would like to inform residents who live in areas serviced by the Collections Depots in Mitchells Plain and Woodstock that they can expect delays in their refuse collection over the coming days.
The Mitchells Plain Collections Depot closed yesterday, Wednesday 20 May 2020, and the Woodstock Collections Depot was closed on Monday 18 May 2020.
Two staff members have tested positive at the Woodstock Collections Depot and one staff member has tested positive at the Mitchells Plain Collections Depot. (Two of the staff were office-based, and one staff member was part of the refuse removal crew). As a result of the positive cases of COVID-19, the facilities need to be/remain closed for approximately the next three days until deep cleaning and disinfecting have been completed. This includes disinfecting the facilities and vehicles.
We wish our staff members all the best with their recovery and we are thinking of them and their families during this time.
Those who have been in close contact with the staff members are being required to self-quarantine.
The City is concerned about not only the health but general wellbeing of our staff, and management is checking in regularly with staff members who have tested positive. They are also communicating with their close contacts to advise on the way forward in terms of quarantining, testing/screening.
Services in affected areas should be able to resume from next week.
