This is once again an appeal to all residents in the Overstrand to only place your bin or bags on the pavement at 07:00 in the mornings on the relevant refuse collection day.
If black bags are left outside and it is not the day for the municipality to pick them up, baboons, birds, dogs and cats rip open rubbish bags and litter is strewn around.
It is essential that home owners take heed and for landlords and letting agents to convey the information to tenants and holidaymakers as well - especially in Pearly Beach where homeowners and weekenders still put their bags on the sidewalk on days when refuse is not removed.
Residents are cautioned that it is a contravention of the Integrated Waste Management By-law to place refuse on their pavements on days other than the scheduled refuse collection days.
Fines will be issued to offenders.
