The Overberg District Municipality (ODM), who owns and operates the Karwyderskraal landfill site, recently published new rates and rules pertaining to the use of this facility, effective 1 July 2019.
Overstrand residents who make use of this site to dispose of builders’ rubble, garden refuse (chipped) and general household waste are urged to take note of the following.
In order to make use of the Karwyderskraal landfill site, residents, contractors or anyone who transports building rubble, chipped garden refuse or any domestic waste to the site must first register with the Overberg District Municipality as a site user. Failure to do so would result in dumping being denied.
In short, unless your name appears on the database, you will not be allowed to dispose of any waste - even if you show up at the landfill site for the first time.
No unchipped garden refuse will be accepted. Refuse of this nature should be disposed of at the transfer stations in Kleinmond, Hermanus or the Stanford Drop-off and Gansbaai Landfill site; all of which have been equipped with chipping facilities.
As from 1 July 2019, builders’ rubble will be classified as either “sorted/clean" or "unsorted/contaminated", and the rates to dispose thereof will be adjusted accordingly.
- 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.
From 1 July 2019 till 30 June 2020, the following tariffs (VAT excluded) will apply for disposals at the Karwyderskraal landfill site:
|Description||Tariff per ton, or part thereof|
|Cover material and clean builders’ rubble containing nothing larger than the size of a brick||No charge|
|Oversized clean builders’ rubble (any of the load larger than brick size)||R100.00|
|Mixed, contaminated or unsorted builders’ rubble (contains wood, paper, steel, etc.)||R220.00|
The Karwyderskraal regional landfill facility is open between 08:00 and 17:00 from Monday to Friday. It is closed on weekends, but will be accessible should a public holiday fall on a weekday.
