Residents of Philippi East have been informed of the temporary suspension of waste collection services, the second time such services have been withdrawn by the City of Cape Town’s Urban Waste Management (UWM) Directorate in the area this year. ### Security Incident Leads to Suspension
Cape Town’s municipal authorities have introduced a groundbreaking pilot project to combat the issue of waste management in community residential units (CRUs). The initiative aims to tackle the problem of overflowing bins and illegal dumping that often plague areas inhabited by backyard tenants. The ultimate goal of the project is to improve community health and cleanliness.
