Closure Of Buffelsdraai Landfill Site

13 JULY 2023

The City would like to inform residents, clients, and the broader public that the Buffelsdraai Landfill Site has been closed until further notice. 
This follows unfortunate events of the past couple of days when the site was invaded and set alight by some members of the public, leading to a confrontation between security personnel and invaders.
This confrontation and its aftermath is now being investigated by the police.

Customers are advised to use Illovo Landfill Site to dispose of general waste in the meantime. The Illovo landfill site is at D982, Illovo farm. 

The public will be advised when operations will resume at the Buffelsdraai site.

For enquiries, residents can contact the Cleansing and Solid Waste Unit helpline on 031 311 8804 or email
