Stellenbosch Municipality

The Executive Mayor of Stellenbosch, Advocate Gesie Van Deventer welcomed the delivery of two compactor waste trucks on Thursday, 30 March 2017 in front of the Stellenbosch Town Hall. When Mayor van Deventer took office in August 2016, she said: “Making sure our towns are clean is a priority. Residents have informed me directly that clean towns are a priority for them. Furthermore, by keeping our towns clean we ensure that the first impressions for our visitors are memorable and positive. Our new compactors will help us to do exactly that, keep our towns beautiful. I urge every resident to do their part in keeping our towns clean by using rubbish bins that are available all over the area.“

The specially branded trucks are valued at R 2.5 million each. The compactors were purchased in order to replace aged fleet. Replacing aged and defective vehicles prevents continuously spending large sums of money on repairs and prevents costs in overtime for staff and ensures effective and speedy service delivery.


A refuse compactor is basically designed to mechanically lift two wheelie bins simultaneously, empty them into the receiving cab and then compress the waste in order to maximise volume for transport to the disposal facility. With proper maintenance and care, each compactor should have a lifespan of 8 years.


These units are designed to only collect general waste i.e. household domestic refuse and trade or business waste. No rubble, acids, grease or large bulky objects such as tree trunks should be collected by the compactor, as it will damage the mechanical parts.


The Municipality made use of a National Treasury tender to cut down the delivery time and costs of the trucks.

Please be informed that the normal municipal refuse removal services will not take place as per the normal schedule due to Good Friday on 14 April 2017. The areas affected will be serviced on Saturday, 15 April 2017.

Residents are kindly requested not to place refuse bins outside for service on 14 April 2017, but that it rather be placed outside on 15 April 2017.

Normal refuse removal services will take place on all other days, including public holidays.

U word vriendelik versoek om geen vullisdromme op 14 April 2017 uit te plaas nie, maar wel op 15 April 2017 soos hierbo aangedui.

‘n Normale vullisverwyderingsdiens sal wel op die ander openbare vakansiedae gelewer word.
