Overstrand Municipality has intensified its drive against illegal dumping and improper disposal of waste.

Rubbish bags and wheelie bins that are left outside the gate on the sidewalks by weekenders and holiday visitors on days when refuse is not removed, are a huge problem everywhere.

Anyone caught leaving waste on the sidewalks on the night before scheduled removal days, will be reported to Law Enforcement to assist with the enforcement of the Integrated Waste Management By-law.
