Refuse collection to take place as normal over festive season<p>​The City of Cape Town’s Solid Waste Management Department wishes to advise residents that refuse collection services will remain unchanged during the festive season. Refuse will be collected on the scheduled refuse collection days, including the following public holidays:<br><br>•         Day of Reconciliation: 16 December 2016<br>•         Day of Goodwill: 26 December 2016<br>•         Public holiday: 27 December 2016<br>•         Public holiday: 2 January 2016</p><p>As normal, residents are requested to ensure that their bins are placed outside for collection by 06:00 on the scheduled refuse collection day. Residents should please not wait for the refuse collection vehicle to enter their street before taking the bin to the pavement. The collection teams might arrive much earlier than usual as there is likely to be reduced traffic congestion on the roads on these days.</p><p>Furthermore, residents are advised that drop-off facilities will operate as follows:</p><span><div class="mobile-scroll"><table> <caption></caption> <thead><tr><th>Date</th><th>Public holiday </th><th>times</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td>16 December 2016         </td><td>Day of Reconciliation            </td><td>08:00 – 17:00</td></tr><tr><td>24 December 2016</td><td>Christmas Eve</td><td>08:00 – 15:00</td></tr><tr><td>25 December 2016</td><td>Christmas Day</td><td>Closed</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​26 December 2016</td><td rowspan="1">​Day of Reconciliation</td><td rowspan="1">​08:00 – 17:00</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​27 December 2016</td><td rowspan="1">​Public holiday </td><td rowspan="1">​08:00 – 17:00</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​31 December 2016</td><td rowspan="1">​New Year’s Eve</td><td rowspan="1">​08:00 – 15:00</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​1 January 2017</td><td rowspan="1">​New Year’s Day</td><td rowspan="1">​Closed</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​2 January 2017</td><td rowspan="1">​Public holiday</td><td rowspan="1">​08:00 – 17:00</td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><br>For any further queries, residents should please contact the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p></span>2016-12-14T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#f2666518-9a9f-4cb8-b9b5-555137fea74c;L0|#0f2666518-9a9f-4cb8-b9b5-555137fea74c|refuse collection;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#c84b1049-ec05-40c4-9844-15ff8601e738;L0|#0c84b1049-ec05-40c4-9844-15ff8601e738|collections plan;GP0|#a5abee55-997c-46e5-b31c-348d6b999fa2;L0|#0a5abee55-997c-46e5-b31c-348d6b999fa2|festive season1
