UPDATE: 27/02/2017

SECUNDA – The Secunda municipal dumpsite is still closed.

Local businesses and garden services have come together at municipal offices to bring the problem to the attention of the municipalities.

According to the people gathered there, they are fed up with the mismanagement of the dumpsite by the municipality.

There has been a call for private residents to join the protests and bring their uncollected rubbish to the municipal offices.

Local refuse removal services and garden services have blocked the road leading to the Secunda magistrates court and the parking lot in front of the court.



SECUNDA – The road leading to the Govan Mbeki Municipal Dumpsite has now been closed, in what land owner, Mr Andre du Preez, is calling a final and permanent decision.

According to Ms Mariaan Chamberlain, the DA ward councillor for this area, the municipality apparently did not honour the verbal agreement between the land owner and Mr Ernest Michele, the acting municipal manager.

Earlier today the Ridge Times reported that the road was open for municipal vehicles, and that the municipality had given assurances that payment would be made to Interwaste, the company operating the municipal dump.

It would appear that no payment was made, and Interwaste has once again downed tools.

Interwaste has stopped operating at Secunda Dumping Site.

Without their machinery clearing the access road, and sorting and compacting the dumpsite, the dump becomes unusable, and many residents then take to dumping their refuse illegally on Mr Du Preez’s land.

It is because of this possibility of illegal dumping that he has closed the road.
