New Technology Introduced in May, 2006

Bulk services
Pikitup took a strategic decision to discontinue its lift-on bulk services at the end of May, 2006, in favour of front-end loading technology. The latter is more cost effective and operationally more efficient.

Pikitup has launched several sustainable development initiatives in line with the global aims of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development. One of these initiatives is Pikitup’s composting plant, situated at the Panorama site in Roodepoort.
