Litter-picking levy improves cleanliness, says metro

The city has already visited several areas in Ekurhuleni to engage communities on creating environments and spaces within which they can live, work and play.

The City of Ekurhuleni strives to create environmentally friendly spaces in residential and industrial areas.

Waste removal is a key service to ratepayers to ensure that they live in a clean environment.

The service is paid for through waste removal tariffs and other special tariffs such as bulk containers removal, a sundry tariff for animal carcass removal, etc.

In built-up areas, such as industrial areas and CBDs, there is more litter the city is required to clean.

This is done through litter-picking and street cleaning.

To ensure the continuation of this service is safeguarded, the city charges industrial area and business property owners a litter-picking levy.

The litter-picking levy of R0.1146 per m2 of the property area for service rendered at least once per week is charged for normal litter-picking services in the identified business/industrial erven to keep the area clean with a maximum of R2 301.91 per month in spite of the waste generated by the individual properties.

The said amount contributes to collection, transportation and disposal costs thereof.

Furthermore, residents need to note that the litter-picking levy is not charged to residential customers, and their domestic waste tariff reflected on their municipal account will remain.
