NOTICE 20/2020 - REFUSE REMOVAL

MUNICIPAL MANAGER - MR THABISO KLAAS, 2020-06-24

NOTICE 22/2020 TO BCRM RESIDENTS: REFUSE COLLECTION
 
Dear BCRM Residents

Let’s make Somerset East a town to be proud of again!
 
Please assist the municipality with their service delivery challenges by doing you part.
 
Household refuse is collected by municipal workers – its included in your tariff but please note:
1)	Only place on pavement on morning of collection (less time for dogs and vendors looking for recyclables and food to tear bags).
2)	Please do not mix black bags with garden refuse piles.
3)	Put black bags outside your own property.

Garden refuse disposal is your responsibility if it cannot fit in a black refuse bag. Please note:
1)	Past collection by the BCRM was not budgeted for, it was a bonus. This service is now beyond our capacity.
2)	Until designated sites are identified for skips for residents to fill with their garden refuse (this plan is in progress) regard all current “communal sites” as no go areas.
3)	If the load is too large for a black bags you have 3 choices: Either
•	Call the Community Services department and they will collect it and charge you the following tariffs per load: Garden Refuse - R474.46(Vat Incl.) and Building Rubble – R619.67 (Vat Incl.)
OR
•	Take the garden refuse and building rubble to the municipal tip yourself – no charge to dump, but please dump AT THE SITE, NOT ALONG ROAD
OR
•	Plan with your neighbours/road a communal removal plan

 If you have any queries please contact your local Councillor for clarification

Sincerely

THABISO KLAAS
MUNICIPAL MANAGER
