The City of Cape Town wastes R350 million on combating illegal dumping that could be of better use delivering other basic services.
The City's Ernest Sonnenberg on Tuesday said that litter and illegal dumping is becoming a growing trend from neighborhoods to the city centre.
Sonnenberg cautioned communities not to make use of services from rubble removers who engage in illegal dumping activities.

Be vigilant of the bakkie brigade that is roaming around. They are taking your problem and making it a community problem.— Ernest Sonnenberg, Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services
