Refuse Site – The way forward!
The control burn which started on 5 April 2018 was completed on Friday, 13 April 2018. A big thank you to Frik and Vaughn for a difficult task well done! A picture speaks a thousand words – BEFORE AND AFTER 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 it to the Port Alfred landfill site.

Refuse Site – Update 11 April

Refuse Site – Update 11 April
Control burning Concerns have been raised about smoke from the refuse site. Our previous notice regarding the process of burning the garden refuse which started on 5 April 2018, refers. This process will continue for some time as only sections of the huge pile of garden refuse can be moved to the” burn area” and then burnt. Burning is dependent on the wind direction, therefore, the process will take some time. Burning is done under strict control and all the necessary precautions are in place.   Issued by the Kleinemonde Residents & Ratepayers Association

Refuse site: Update: 30 March 2018

Refuse site: Update: 30 March 2018
The area where the controlled burn will be done has been cleared. The next step is to move small sections of garden refuse into that area and then burn it. Unfortunately, this process is being hampered by users of the site, who dump garden refuse and other garbage (e.g. plastic bottles, old carpets, scrap iron, glass bottles, and packaging material) all mixed up. Before burning can be done this garbage needs to be separated from the garden refuse, as much of this garbage does not burn spontaneously and will continue to smoulder, giving off, in many instances, toxic fumes. Burning only ga...

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...

Down by the riverside We were fortunate do have (mostly) good weather over the December 2016 holiday period with the picnic area on the East river bank crowded with holiday makers and parking spots at a premium. Despite a number of requests over the years for flush-type portable toilets equipped with a hand wash basin, we were again given two of the open bucket type. The Municipality contracted a company to provide these toilets who had the responsibility, as part of the contract, to service them daily. This ...
