All households in baboon problem areas must have an animal proof bin for domestic waste.
A baboon proof bin doesn’t have to be a wheelie bin but some people have been able to convert their bin for less than R250.
Baboon-resistant 240-litre Wheelie bins, with locks, can be purchased at the municipal offices and it will be delivered to your home. Bins cost R1 636 (the price is inclusive of VAT and is valid 1 July 2023 - 30 June 2024).
Alternatively, bins can be bought at any hardware store and baboon proof locks can be fitted, at an additional charge, on your existing bin.
