KOUGA Municipality has increased its efforts to fight illegal dumping and keep communities clean by acquiring 20 new skip bins.

The 6m² containers, worth R348 840 in total, have been distributed to hot spots for illegal dumping.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality was intensifying its war against waste to ensure that all of Kouga’s people live, work and play in clean and healthy environments.

She asked communities to please take note of the following:

  • Adults are asked not to send children to go and dispose of waste at skip bins. Youngsters cannot always reach the mouth of the container and then simply dump the contents next to the bin.
  • No fires must be made inside the skip bins, even if it is to burn waste.
