Do you remain on the same lifting day and what about Christmas?
Yes, we remain on the same lifting day right through the year even over holidays. We pre-arrange for an alternative lifting day in that same week to accommodate Christmas – and New Year’s day.
How does your recycling work?
This service is rendered free of charge to all clients making use of our waste removal services. A new transparent bag is provided on a weekly basis to each person wishing to recycle. The recyclables (glass, paper, plastic and tin) are removed with our recycling truck on the same lifting day as the other waste.
What colour is your bins and can we choose to have black dustbins?
240l Blue (weekly/daily) and Green (garden) bins. Only Tshwane Waste is allowed to use black bins – the authorised service providers are prohibited to use black bins according to their bylaws. Schedule 1 (6.) “No other container shall have the same colour as the containers used by the Municipality.“
Do we need to buy dustbins?
No, we supply and maintain them (free of charge) to all our clients. It remains our property and can be marked with stickers only.
