'Waste drop-off facilities in Cape Town are definitely open and operational'

Mayco member for waste services Xanthea Limberg says three dump sites will be upgraded and only one will be temporarily closed.

Are all the waste dumping sites in Cape Town closed? A garden landscaper contacted the breakfast Show and said some were not open and he was struggling to dump his garden waste.

Mayco member for Water, Sanitation and waste services Xanthea Limberg chats to Kieno Kammies and insists this is not the case.

None of the City's waste drop-off facilities have been closed. There will be some sites that will be receiving quite large upgrades to the facilities, Kommetjie and Hout Bay and Woodstock among those.

Kommetjie and Hout Bay will remain open and operational during the upgrade, she says but Woodstock will have to be temporarily closed due to construction.

But we have attempted to in advance, inform all of the users about that.

Kammies asked Limberg whether reports that the site on Ladie's Mile has been reportedly sold to developers is true, but Limberg could not comment on that saying, the site is currently operational.

I cannot state whether it will be sold or not....to my knowledge there is no such agreement in place.

Should this occur, she insists the City will inform residents.

Listeners then called in to say the site on Ladies Mile is closed and in fact, construction is already underway.

After the interview, Limberg messaged the Breakfast Show and said she had been confused and in fact, the ladies mile land had to be given back to the Solomon Brothers as part of a land claim. The City is constructing a further waste drop off at Prince George Drive to further cater to residents as a replacement for Ladies Mile. Construction is also starting later this year and it is scheduled to be open by 2020/2021
