Having been in operation for the past 20 years, the increased demand has necessitated the current upgrade.
Knysna Mayoral Committee member, Portfolio: Community Services, Cathy Weideman said: “As our number of households increase, so does the waste and waste collection. We are therefore in the process of increasing the capacity loads of the transfer station to accommodate our growing communities.”
The Solid Waste Department will start upgrade and maintenance work to the refuse transfer station on Monday, 19 September. The construction taking place will extend the current platform.
The upgrading and maintenance work is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete.
As a safety precautionary measure all persons are requested to liaise with the transfer supervisor Jonathan Salmans for permission to enter the area.
This will be the first phase of several upgrades. The second phase is due to start in November.
Details of this phase will be provided closer to the time.
