The baboon troop only visits Kleinmond for a few weeks usually around this time of year.
Every resident and visitor to the area has a responsibility to manage their waste properly and to secure their waste bins before the baboons get hold of them. No black bags may be left on pavements.
Please assist the Overstrand Municipality by securely storing your waste and complying with the Integrated Waste Management By-Law by only putting waste out on the waste collection day only in an animal proof container.
Alternatively, should you not have an animal proof container, you may deliver your waste directly to the Transfer Station instead of placing in on the curb side for collection by the waste collection teams.
The Overstrand Eco-monitors (aka baboon criers) are also patrolling the area to warn residents in Kleinmond that the baboon troop has entered the town so they can close doors and windows timeously.
