Rapid Response Team continues major City clean-up
The Rapid Response Team (RRT) conducted a large-scale clean-up in the Umbilo and Dalton areas recently.

The RRT fined non-compliant businesses, fixed burst water pipes, unblocked wastewater systems and removed illegal water and electricity connections. The teams also cleared illegal dumping, carried out road maintenance, fixed electricity streetlights, pruned trees while addressing health issues, and ensuring fire compliance. 

The team fined three households over R1 000 each for utilising Municipal services illegally.

EThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda said the contravention of Municipal bylaws is a crime. 

“The RRT is cleaning up the City in all aspects. Three houses in Umbilo which owe the City huge amounts for Municipal services were disconnected for illegal water and electricity connections. A food outlet was closed for grossly unhygienic conditions and contravention of food bylaws. Other businesses were fined up to R 3000 for non-compliance,” said Mayor Kaunda. 

He urged residents to dispose of waste responsibly and to refrain from dumping litter illegally.

The clean-up campaign is a concerted effort of various service delivery units in the City.

As part of the campaign, street traders were educated on health practices and Covid-19 safety protocols. The team also replaced 25 bins that were stolen.

The theft of bins manhole covers, and electricity cables is on the rise in the City.
