Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Orrin Singh

AS part of its ef­forts to speed up ser­vice de­liv­ery, the City of uMh­lathuze has spent R62-mil­lion on the pur­chase of a new fleet of ve­hi­cles for var­i­ous de­part­ments. Ac­cord­ing to City spokesper­son Mdu Ncalane, at least three new waste man­age­ment trucks were pur­chased to as­sist with refuse re­moval. ‘Th­ese trucks are equipped with sta­teof-the-art tech­nol­ogy that deals with waste in peo­ple’s dust­bins. ‘They will ser­vice all 34 wards within the city along with the older trucks, which are still in good use.’ Ncalane said the city has also in­vested in 11 new trac­tors for cut­ting grass and 30 ve­hi­cles which range from TLB’s to road con­struc­tion and pot hole fix­ing ma­chin­ery.

The new trucks are fully au­to­mated and de­signed speci cally to en­trap waste in a me­chan­i­cally op­er­ated bin so as not to cause any spillage on the City’s roads Orrin Singh
