The Vehicle Testing Station and Motor Vehicle Licencing office in Hibernia Street are open to the public but the offices can only deal with 25 persons at a time inside the building and yard,  in terms of the social distancing requirements  - the Covid measures which include sanitisation, taking of temperature  and registering of your personal details are time consuming which leads to further delays.

The municipality would like to again remind residents that learner’s licences, driver's licences, temporary driver's licences and professional driving permits that expired between 26 March and 31 May and could not be renewed due to the Covid-19 national disaster and consequent restrictions, are still considered valid  as amended this week with the VALIDITY EXTENDED TO 31 JANUARY 2021.

Applicants who had appointments during the lockdown period (27 March – 1 June 2020) or during the times when the offices were closed due to Covid-related incidences, will be notified by SMS of their new appointment dates and times . If, for some reason, you do not receive an SMS, please contact the licencing service centre – all contact details are on the back of your payment receipt.

Green and blue bag service to continue in-house

Full service resumes from 11 August

Recycling programme to continue in-house

 

The George Municipality confirms that as of the 11th August, the collection and delivery of blue and green bags will be handled in-house. Following the announcement of the unfortunate closure of Interwaste, the appointed service provider, discussions were held to try and extend the service by one month. Unfortunately these discussions were not successful and the Community Service Directorate requests the patience of the public for one week to afford them the opportunity to put everything in place for a smooth collection process to start on 11th August.

 

The municipality remains committed to waste reduction and recycling, and believes that its efforts will soon regain momentum.  Collection of green and blue bags will start on Tuesday 11 August 2020, and will be collected in neighbourhoods on the same day as the black bag refuse removal. PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR RECYCLING AND/OR GREEN BAGS OUT FOR WEEK MONDAY 3/08 – FIRDAY 7/08 AS COLLECTION WILL NOT TAKE PLACE.

 

Municipal trucks will collect the black bags, while blue and green bags will be collected by different trucks on the same day – before or after the black bag collection, and can be hours apart. Every week on the same day as collection, blue bags will be replaced and two green bags will replace those put out. The areas currently serviced by recycling include all suburbs of George as well as the outer areas of Wilderness, Kleinkrantz, Hoekwil, Victoria Bay, Herolds Bay, Haarlem and Uniondale.

GENERAL

Households may put out seven black, three green and an unlimited number of blue bags.

Additional tied bundles of branches are allowed if they are shorter than a metre in length and can be picked up by one person.

 

BLUE bags are for non-soiled recyclable materials, including plastic, paper, card board, glass etc.

GREEN bags are for green waste, including organic kitchen waste such as fruit and vegetable peels, as well as garden waste, including grass cuttings, leaves etc. No soil is allowed in the green bags.

BLACK bags are for ‘wet’ waste, things that cannot be recycled.

 

All refuse bags must be put out by 7am on removal day.

Please don’t put bags out the day or night before removal.

Please wrap broken glass in newspaper before placing in bags to prevent injuries to workers.

A pack of 26 black bags are distributed to households quarterly.

 

Blue and green bags are collected on the same day as black bag refuse removal, but by different trucks – before or after the black bag collection and may be hours apart.

Collected full blue bags will be replaced with the same colour on the same day. If you do not receive the same amount of replacement blue bags and want more, please phone  044 802 2900 during office hours.

While you can put out three green bags at a time, a maximum of two new replacement green bags  are issued per collection.
