New lease for landfill

A new agreement will see the life span of the landfill site at Karwyderskraal extended by eight years.

The Overberg District Municipality (ODM), Overstrand Municipality and Theewaterskloof Municipality signed a Service Level Agreement for the Karwyderskraal Landfill site.

“It was a historic moment on Friday 6 July when the agreement for the new cell at the Karwyderskraal landfill site was signed after successful negotiations,” said Coenie Groenewald, Municipal Manager for Overstrand Municipality.

“This Service Level Agreement is for the estimated useful life span of the whole Karwyderskraal Landfill site, estimated to be 55 years old, and will commence once the new cell in the landfill site is completed.”

In terms of the agreement, the ODM will construct a new cell in the landfill site and maintain the landfill site to ensure Overstrand Municipality, Theewaterskloof Municipality and other interested parties and local municipalities in the Overberg Regional District have a facility to dispose of general waste.

According to estimates, the new cell (the fourth one of its kind) will be able to take approximately 200 000 tons of solid waste. At the current growth rate the new cell will therefore take approximately eight years to fill before a new cell will have to be commissioned.

Groenewald said signing the agreement was a truly historic moment after more than one and a half years of negotiations between all affected parties.

“Overstrand Municipality, as well as the others, are committed to reducing our carbon footprint in order to extend the lifetime of the cells.”
