Illegal Dumping and Littering
March saw fewer cases of dumping within the Blackheath Industrial Area. The reward to anybody who can provide me with information as to the registration number and a description of the vehicle that is dumping tyres is still on offer, we are very keen to catch this person who is responsible for dumping tyres throughout the Blue Downs area and now also in Blackheath.
We appeal to everyone in Blackheath to prevent littering and dumping. The BCID team collected a staggering 185 refuse bags of waste from the road verges this month of which 60 bags were used for clearing the road verges from weeds and grass and 125 bags for picking up litter along the road side.
We further call on everyone to call the BCID security vehicle when spotting a suspicious vehicle that may be dumping building material or garden refuse or even tyres as this has been a serious problem during January and February. The 24h ST3 Security Patrol vehicle can be contacted on 021-905 3399 or 079 274 9841 or on the BCID emergency no: 0860 00 BCID (2243)!
We cleansed every street within the Blackheath CID Area in March. Please report any specific issues to us for immediate attention from the CID Cleansing team on 021 905 0929 who respond to matters immediately under the stewardship of Mr. Jacobus Rossouw.
We tended to weeds along all these routes and dealt with alien vegetation along the main roads. Illegal dumping sites were cleaned in School, Sysen and Buttskop Roads and for general waste and litter.
Trafford Road was cleared of tyres and litter and in Range, Metal and Nicole Roads we cleared concrete and building rubble.
Although the number of incidents of dumping has decreased significantly from last month it is still not at acceptable levels and we urge all too please report illegal dumping. All Law enforcement related issues can be reported directly to 107 from the landline or 021 596 1999 from a cell phone. Try to get a photograph of the event for the purpose of having evidence to support the complaint and be sure that we can bring the perpetrator to book.
