Durban - eThekwini Municipality ratepayers have lashed the municipality for not providing an interim domestic refuse removal service after workers downed tools at the Durban Solid Waste.
Residents expressed their outrage on Facebook when the EThekwini Municipality posted on Monday that cleansing and solid waste is currently unable to provide refuse service collection and street sweeping in and around Durban due to the on-going strike action.

"We kindly request that you keep all refuse within properties, or to take it to your nearest landfill site: Mariannhill, Ilovu or Buffelsdraai. We will notify you when waste collection resumes. We profusely apologise for the inconvenience caused."
Within an hour outraged residents living in various parts of the city commented.
Kesin Kaz Raman said, "The apology means nothing recall the mayor and put a team in charge who will sort out the situation."
