More litter bins for informal settlements as City approves the rollout extension<div>At the Mayoral Committee meeting held on 17 May 2022, Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Waste Management, Alderman Grant Twigg tabled a report for an extension of the contract that will see the supply and delivery of about 60 000 litter bins to informal settlements. These 80 litre bins will serve as temporary storage of domestic waste for the residents of informal settlements.</div><div><br></div><div>The budget for this is approximately R6 million and it  includes the appointment of staff, purchase of bins and the material used for their installation. The bins allow the residents to discard their waste just outside of their homes and provide for safe containment of waste and, therefore, positively impact on the well-being of residents of the informal settlements.</div><div><br></div><div>‘It was established that residents would keep their blue bags indoors and only put them outside on collection day. This poses a health risk, and we cannot allow that to happen.</div><div><br></div><div>‘As part of our calls to Keep Cape Town clean, we have to ensure that we assist our residents in keeping their immediate space clean because everything begins at home,’ Alderman Twigg.</div><div><br></div><div> </div><div>End</div><div> </div><div><br><br></div><p><br></p>2022-05-19T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#ff4420fb-9e65-4e1a-9896-e2982e0b1927;L0|#0ff4420fb-9e65-4e1a-9896-e2982e0b1927|recycle;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#299768d4-c86a-487f-bde6-a09376d3fcdf;L0|#0299768d4-c86a-487f-bde6-a09376d3fcdf|bin;GP0|#a83e4cc6-6869-4ccb-a6ef-366f36e76fb8;L0|#0a83e4cc6-6869-4ccb-a6ef-366f36e76fb8|Informal settlement10
