THE Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association once again appeals to the community to stop dumping at the drop-off centre in Delamore Road.

Chairperson Marge Mitchell said on the evening of 18 March the security guard at the recycling centre saw the illegal dumping of tyres and wood at the centre.

The incident was also captured on the security camera, but being dark the registration number could not be identified.

“Due to the quick thinking of the guard, he noted the registration number, and the car make, which was traced to a resident in an upmarket gated complex in Hillcrest,” said Mitchell.

“The details are in possession of SAPS and our association intends following up with SAPS and the authorities at the municipality on this matter of illegal dumping.”

Mitchell said that the association appeals to residents, visitors, business owners to respect the site.

“The site is not run or managed by the municipality. It is by Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association volunteers. Do not abuse it, please.”

Mitchell reminded everyone that the site only collects glass bottles, paper, cardboard, cans and polystyrene.
She urged residents not to bring windscreens, plate glass, crockery, tyres, hosepipes, paint cans, garden refuse as those belong at the Shongweni Landfill Site.
