Dagga Seized During Clean-Up Operation Near Bisasar Landfill Site

3 JUNE 2023

Large packets of dagga were seized from the occupants of a vehicle at a checkpoint during a clean-up operation at the corner of Electron and Dhulam roads near the Bisasar Landfill Site in Springfield, Durban. The suspects were taken to the Sydenham Police Station. 

The checkpoint was introduced during the start of the Bisasar clean-up operation recently and is operated by the City’s law enforcement officers. Vehicles are checked to determine if they have a scheduled trade permit to transport waste. Vehicles that are carrying waste that is not accepted at the site are diverted to the correct facilities. The Bisasar Landfill Site only accepts garden waste of 3.5 tons and below, rubble, and sand cover material.

Tons of waste that has been illegally dumped by residents and businesses were collected outside the landfill site. They include garden waste, building rubble, and commercial and industrial waste. 

The City urges residents and businesses to refrain from illegal dumping. The City will continue to issue fines to transgressors who dump waste on open spaces. Residents are urged to report those who dump illegally on the following contact details: 031 311 8804 or email 

Residents and businesses are advised to utilise the following options for proper disposal of waste: 
Marrianhill Landfill Site: Accepts only garden waste, rubble, and sand cover material.  
North – Buffelsdraai Landfill Site: The site accepts all types of waste. 
South – Lovu Landfill Site: Accepts all types of waste.
The clean- up operation outside the Bisasar Landfill site is still continuing.
