Office closed

Sharon Cottle, Ward 58 councillor

As you know due to the lockdown, effective as of last Thursday March 26, the ward office will be closed.

The City will still be providing basic services to all our residents.

Services might be running late due to the impact of the Covid-19 virus, but they will be rendered. I’m therefore asking you to please be patient and bear with us during the lockdown period.

Refuse collection is a big concern for all residents and we ask you to please leave your black wheelie bin outside for collection from 6.30am to 9pm. In some areas, refuse will only be collected the next day. If this extends to a third day please contact us.

You can find a vast range of information at the City of Cape Town website at
