Building rubble removal
Builders’ rubble up to 1 ton
An appeal is made to residents and to builders not to mix bricks, stone and sand (i.e. clean building rubble up to the size of a brick) with material such as cement bags, plastic, paper, cardboard and metal or planks (i.e. contaminated building rubble)
Smaller quantities of building rubble up to one ton (0 to 1 ton) can be disposed of FREE OF CHARGE if it is CLEAN/ SORTED and up to the size of a brick at Kleinmond Transfer Station and the drop-off facilities in Hawston, Stanford and Pearly Beach Drop-off as well as the Gansbaai and Karwyderskraal Landfill Sites.
Kindly note, the transfer station and drop-off will NOT BE ACCEPTING loads of builders’ rubble which are greater than 1 ton load capacity or greater than 250mm in size or not clean. (i.e. contaminated with general waste or planks etc that probably originated from a construction or demolition site.)
Builders’ rubble more than 1 ton
Builder’s rubble of more than one ton can be disposed of at Karwyderskraal Landfill – remember, if it is not sorted, you will pay per ton disposed of.
A contaminated load (any planks, cement bags or general waste) will result in the builders’ rubble waste load being charged at a premium of R220/t on actual total mass disposed at the site – if you dispose of 1.2 tons, you will only pay for 1.2 tons.
Anyone who wants to transport building rubble to the Karwyderskraal landfill must be registered with the Overberg District Municipality (ODM). Failure to do so will result in dumping being denied. Registration forms are available from Ingrid Marti at email@example.com or at the Karwyderskraal weighbridge office.
The tariffs for Karwyderskraal landfill is available on the municipal website in the Budget (Annexture C)
- UNSORTED/CONTAMINATED BUILDERS’ RUBBLE implies that the rubble has not been sorted – in other words contains planks, cement bags, general waste and the likes – and probably originated from a construction or demolition site.
- CLEAN BUILDERS’ RUBBLE, implies that the load to be disposed of is clean and contains no items larger than a standard brick.
- OVERSIZE CLEAN BUILDERS’ RUBBLE, on the other hand, implies that the load to be disposed of is clean and contains concrete or rubble larger than a standard brick size.
