Overstrand Municipality recently received a grant of R6.7 million from the Western Cape Department of Local Government to procure and install backup generators to keep additional critical water and wastewater facilities running during load shedding.

“This move reflects the urgency that is desperately needed to address the knock-on effects of relentless power cuts on essential basic services. We cannot allow our citizens to suffer any further. We must act to urgently stabilise municipal services such as water supply, wastewater treatment and sewerage infrastructure for our citizens.

“Our government is working very hard on a number of medium to longer-term strategies to respond to this crisis, but we recognise our responsibility to intervene now where we can.

Agricultural properties will be levied at the “FARMS” tariff, subject to the owner/farmer providing the Municipality with proof that the property is used for bona fide farming purposes.

Bona fide farming means that agricultural land is used primarily for agricultural purposes.

Overstrand Municipality requires a declaration from the owner/farmer as evidence of every farm/portion. Each portion should be on a separate application.

Application forms are available on our website, go to Documents, click on Forms or click here:

The completed application form can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or hand it in to your nearest Overstrand Municipal offices.

Overstrand Municipality has an active recycling programme, but it has become apparent that not everyone in the Overstrand is aware of the refuse collection schedule. Rubbish bags are often placed on the sidewalk for days before they are collected on the scheduled collection date.

The municipal solid waste team work to a set schedule and service different areas on different days of the week, picking up household waste and clean recyclables.

The recycle bags are collected on the same day as the general waste is collected and is then transported to the recycling plant where it is sorted and baled. For every clear plastic bag placed out by a household, a new one will be supplied as replacement.
