Overstrand Municipity's solid waste teams are dealing with a massive increase in illegal dumping in public places as people use their lock down time to clean out their homes.

With nowhere to drop off waste not suitable for bags, people are dumping garbage in public places rather than hold onto it for the time being.

If you see anyone making themselves guilty of illegal dumping, please report it immediately to Overstrand Law Enforcement general complaints (Tel: 028 313 8996) or the 24-hour control room (Tel: 028 313 8111).

Provide as much information as you can, like the physical address, registration number/colour of the vehicle and type of waste.

Better yet, take a picture - especially of their vehicles’ registration numbers - and send the information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
