RIOOLSUIGTROK-DIENSTE: WAT U MOET WEET
Kliënte wat van George Munisipaliteit se rioolsuigtrok-dienste gebruik maak, neem asseblief kennis:

  • Die werking en instandhouding van septiese- en opgaartenke, en alle kostes wat daarmee verband hou, is die verantwoordelikheid van die grondeienaar.
  • Die eienaar moet die vlakke van septiese en opgaartenke gereeld nagaan en ‘n diens lank vooruit bespreek om oorspoelings te vermy.
  • Bepreek die uitsuig/skoonmaak van tenke ten minste drie dae vooruit by die telefoonnommers hieronder.
  • Onmiddellike reaksie in die geval van noodriooloorspoelings kan nie verseker word nie en hang van die beskikbaarheid en skedulering van suigtrokvoertuie af.
  • Uitsuig of skoonmaak van tenke wat na-ure (4.30nm-7.45vm), oor naweke en publieke vakansiedae plaasvind is duurder, soos per die munisipale tariewe, en sal slegs gedoen word indien die kliënt bevestig dat die na-ure fooi aanvaar word.

Bespreek u rioolsuigtrok-dienste by 044 801 9262/66.
