Refuse site update: August 2019

Refuse site update: August 2019
The use of the skips The three skips at the refuse site are for household refuse contained in a plastic bag. Riet River, Kleinemonde West and Fish River Cottages all make use of these skips for their household refuse therefore space is limited. A few examples of illegal dumping still taking place:   One skip almost filled with broken plastic chairs, empty plastic drums, old mattress, and electrical fittings. Highly irresponsible: 8 unused shotgun cartridges found in a skip!! A chip off the old block To date we have been using a control burn to burn garden refuse at ou...

Kleinemonde Newsletter             May  2019 Refuse site Our contract to manage the refuse site for a period of six months, starting October 2018, has been extended until end of June 2019, when it will be up for re-negotiation. It is pleasing to report that most locals are “buying in” to keep the site neat, but unfortunately there are still isolated instances of illegal dumping taking place, in particular the area reserved only for garden refuse, e.g. Depositing various scrap items together with garden refuse; or Not emptying plastic bags containing garden refuse.

Kleinemonde Refuse Transfer Site

Kleinemonde Refuse Transfer Site
1. Background You have previously been advised that our refuse site will become a “Transfer Site” where only household refuse would be stored in skips for removal by the Municipality. By implication all other refuse – garden, builders’ rubble, scrap metal etc., - will be your responsibility to transport to the Port Alfred landfill site. Because of the experience in other areas where refuse sites have been closed, it resulted in a sharp increase in illegal dumping on vacant stands, a service level agreement has been signed with the Ndlambe Municipality for the Kleinemonde Ratepayers Assoc...

The refuse site As reported previously our refuse site, being only a transfer site, implies that only household refuse, in black bags, may be deposited there, in the skips provided. In areas e.g. Kenton-on–Sea, where the refuse site was closed lead to an alarming increase in illegal dumping of waste. Driving around Kleinemonde it is disturbing to notice illegal dumping already taking place – and it can be expected that illegal dumping will increase when the rules governing a transfer site is applied. To counter the anticipated increase of illegal dumping the committee approached t...

Frik proposed, and it was agreed to, that a 50 m x 50 ...

Visitors to our shores!

Visitors to our shores!
On Thursday,  23 March 2017,  we hosted a junior cricket team from the United Kingdom at Kleinemonde Lagoon. There was a party of 14 boys and 5 adults.  They were amazed by the beach and surrounds with the boys having a ball in the sea and on the dunes. We often take our environment for granted as they could not believe the beauty of the area. As expected our community in the form of Ruth-Anne from the shop came to the rescue.   We were advised at short notice of lunch requirements. Ruth-Anne had one and a half hours and produced a magnificent spread,  including a huge chocolate ca...
