Festive season over – only 7 black bags per household will be collected

The public must please note as from the 11th of January 2021 the service with regards to the removal of black refuse bags returns to only 7 black bags allowed.

During the season between 1 December 2020 and 11 January 2021 the Municipality collected all black bags as a courtesy to consumers. Now we revert back to only 7 black bags per week per household.

Blue and green bag pick-up services continue inhouse this week with the help of temporarily reallocated staff while distribution of replacement blue and green bags is expected to commence next week (25 January 2021). If you are using black bags at the moment for your recycling and garden waste, please help us by identifying black bags containing recyclable and green waste with blue or green string, stickers or papers.


Black bags continue to be distributed once a quarter, with the next pack of 26 black bags to be delivered towards the end of March 2021.

We remind citizens that bags must be placed outside on the curb by 7am on collection day.
