Thank you to Reginald (Mannetjies) de Jongh and his street and storm water team members (Leon Moses, Landile Mayekiso, Gershan Henn and Antony Gillomee), who worked long hours to complete the paving job near the Marine Hotel in Hermanus last night, 8 March 2023.

“Good to see their neat work and good spirits,” Mayor Rabie said.

She thanked all the municipal staff for doing Overstrand proud.


Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, and her Mayoral Committee handed out the first wheelie bins to the residents of Hawston Heights on Thursday, 2 March 2022.

All 378 households in this development that is situated East of The R43 in Hawston will receive bins.

The distribution of 240L wheelie bins is an attempt to encourage the community to tackle the issue of illegal dumping.

It is a well-known fact that cleaning up illegally dumped waste is much more expensive than collecting from individual wheelie bins, and Council decided to provide free bins to the newer housing projects in Hawston and Zwelihle (C1 and C2).

The distributed wheelie bins will also strengthen the Municipality's efforts to achieve a clean and healthy environment for all.
