Two fined for illegal dumping

Authorities say illegal dumping is a huge problem in Khayelitsha.
Two tip trucks were caught illegally dumping building rubble in Gwegweleza Crescent in Makhaza on Friday April 6.

The drivers of both trucks were fined and their vehicles impounded.

Law enforcement spokesperson Wayne Dyason said illegal dumping is a huge problem in Khayelitsha.

“The City has now impounded over 200 vehicles and despite recovery of these vehicles setting the owners back by R8 426.81 VAT inclusive, it seems unlearning bad habits is a slow process,” he said.
