Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality strike update

Due to the ongoing municipal strike, we would like to inform residents that the Mfanasekhaya Gqoboshe Customer Care Centre (former Eric Tindale Building), Uitenhage, Walmer, Despatch and KwaNobuhle Customer Care Centres are currently closed.

We would like to advise residents to steer clear of these centres until further notice.

Our Customer Care Centres currently operational are Korsten, Cleary Park, Kwamagxaki, Motherwell Thusong Centre and the New Brighton Customer Care Centre.

Even though these centres are open, we caution residents to use their own discretion when approaching these centres as our Joint Operations Centre (JOC) received reports of intimidation at some of our municipal buildings.

Refuse removal

We request residents to refrain from placing their bags on verges and rather to retain the bags within their premises until further notice.

Our Arlington and Koedoeskloof landfill sites are open and operational for disposal purposes.

Residents can also dispose of their domestic waste and garden refuse (no builders’ rubble) at drop-off centres between 07h00 and 17h00 every day No residents will be turned away during this period.

For any waste management matters, please call 041-506 2833 or e-mail
