Green bin causing fury

A metal container filled with all kinds of dirt is causing one Milnerton resident to have sleepless nights.

According to the resident the small bin on the corner of Knysna Road and Langerman Avenue overflows, and on a windy day most of the dirt and rubbish ends up in the street and in front of his house in the Knysna Hof complex.

The bin is mostly filled with plastic, building waste and Styrofoam.

“You name it, it is there. The bin has been full since last week and when the wind blows it blows everything around in the street.

“I spoke to everyone but no-one knows whose bin it is.

“There is filth around the bin,” says Richard Bohardien (65), the concerned resident.

To date, he says, he has spoken to the management of a shopping centre nearby, a contractor who is working in the area, as well as the local subcouncil.

“The contractor said it’s not their bin and the centre also.

“I live right opposite the centre and on windy days there is plastic and foam right down the road and in front of our building.”

Bohardien has been living in the area for just over a year.

TygerBurger contacted Rent-a-Skip, the company to which the bin belongs. The owner, who did not want to be named, informed the newspaper that the skip had been rented by a building subcontractor and that they too are struggling to get hold of the individual.

He says the skip has been in the area for about a week now. The owner supplied the newspaper with two separate numbers for the men he has been dealing with.
