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.

The General Valuation roll for the financial years 2023/24 - 2027/28 has been published by the Overstrand Municipality, and property owners have until 3 April 2023 to object.  The Valuation Roll is the official record of the value of all rateable properties within the jurisdiction of a municipality area.

The last general valuation was effective from July 2016 and it was found that property values increased significantly since then to bring it in line with present market values.

Property owners may have been shocked at these significant increases and are rightly so, concerned about how this will affect their municipal accounts.  Calculations, based on the new valuations, will be the basis for the new rate in the rand to be recommended to Council for consideration.
