PUBLIC NOTICE: Collection of Garden Refuse as of 8 April

George Municipality would like to inform residents that as of 8 April 2024, the municipality will use tipper trucks to collect and distribute green bags. The collection of both blue and green bags was previously undertaken by a single service provider under one tender. After the discontinuation of this single tender, the decision was taken to issue a tender for collection, per type of waste stream so as to improve the service delivery. The blue bag tender has been finalised, appointed and service will continue as per usual. Unfortunately, the green bag tender is not finalised as of yet and as such the municipality will step in and continue the service.

We kindly request residents not to put out any GREEN BAGS until 8 April. The maximum number of four green bags per collection per household will be implemented from 22 April 2024 once the backlog has been collected.

The municipality apologises for the inconvenience.

_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 green bags._

Building rubble, garden waste and other stuff not suitable for bags, can be dropped off at the George Municipality refuse site on the R102 (airport road).
Open Monday to Friday 7am to 6pm
Saturday 7am-5pm
All public holidays, except 25 December, from 7am-2pm.
