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...

Having a problem?

Having a problem?
It has come to the committees’ notice that residents, when experiencing a problem regarding municipal services in Kleinemonde, contact our Municipal Foreman (Welcome), directly. This procedure, of directly contacting our Foreman, if done un-coordinated, could lead to confusion and the problem not being resolved correctly. Importantly the committee is not aware of such a problem and can, therefore, not ensure the problem is being addressed. We request, therefore, in future, if you have a municipal related problem regarding services in Kleinemonde please report it by either: Visiting...

Household Refuse Collection

Household Refuse Collection
Referring to our Newsletter of August 2018, regarding household refuse collection, the Municipality has now taken delivery of its new compactor and intends introducing it to service Kleinemonde for the collection of household refuse as from Monday, 20 August 2018. The Municipality requests that the black plastic bags, containing your household refuse, in future, be placed outside your house by 08H00 on a Monday morning. The municipality has undertaken to have two skips available at the refuse site, for those who wish to place their household refuse into them outside of the Monday collect...

Newsletter August 2018
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...

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...

Newsletter March 2018
Kleinemonde Newsletter            March 2018 The refuse site – update Since December the amount of garden refuse at the site has increased to such an extent - that driving in and out of the site has become a problem; and the ring rod cum firebreak around the perimeter of the refuse site has become inaccessible.

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