Bins and Baboons

This is an urgent but friendly appeal to all residents who reside in baboon affected areas to make use of animal-proof refuse bins for domestic waste.

Overstrand Municipality’s Solid Waste by-law stipulates clearly that each owner or occupier must use animal-proof containers in areas that the Municipality has identified as problem animal areas. 

The declared problem animal areas are Kleinmond (including Arabella), Betty’s Bay, Rooiels, Pringle Bay, portion of Onrus, Voëlklip, Fernkloof (including the Golf Estate), Hermanus Heights, Eastcliff, Kwaaiwater and a portion of Hawston.

Baboon-resistant 240-litre Wheelie bins with locks can be purchased at the municipal offices and will be delivered to your home. Alternatively, bins can be bought at any hardware store and baboon proof locks can be fitted, at an additional charge, on your existing bin.

Remember, all bins used in baboon-affected areas should be baboon-proof and locked.

Secure bin with latch, strap, padlock or clip at all times.

No refuse (black) bags may be left on pavements or on top of or outside bins in baboon affected areas.
