WATCH: DSW trucks petrol bombed in Springfield Park

One of the Durban Sold Waste trucks that had come under fire

CHAOS has reportedly erupted outside the Bisasar Road Landfill Site in Springfield Park after vagrants reportedly petrol bombed two Durban Solid Waste (DSW) trucks.

According to Sunningdale resident, Daryn Maritz, who reported the incident to the Northglen News, the vagrants are protesting because of a lack of service delivery.

The road has reportedly been closed at the corner of Bisasar and Electron Roads.

Reports have also flooded in that protesters are now burning tyres on the M19 /N2 split, west bound.

Sirens echoed over the phone as fire trucks and police raced past as the paper spoke to Maritz on the phone.

“This happens quite often,” he said. “Off the top of my head the last incident occurred around three months ago.”

In 2016 Maritz expressed concern over the dumping that had spiraled out of control at the landfill site.
