The exponential growth of the city of Ekurhuleni requires an increase in waste service points to complement the growth.
To achieve a balance between growth and services, the City will launch the second phase of the audit of waste service points, a project that was initiated for the Southern region of the City in 2018.
The waste service point audit aims to address the challenges of service delivery in the waste management department by performing a service point audit through surveys of institutions such as households, industries and community organizations to assess the service rendered.
