We Moved

We have moved!

Please note that Saldanha Bay Municipality's Vredenburg Finance Department has moved from the Buller Centre to no. 14 Main Road (Old Nedbank Building). Finance services (including the enquiries desk and pay points) are fully functional and floor assistants are available to direct clients to the new service points.

Application/Alteration of 240-litre refuse containers

Saldanha Bay Municipality herewith informs all residents that as from 1 November 2017 a verification process will start to compare refuse removal services rendered versus refuse removal services billed.

Therefore if a household is only billed for one refuse bin, the municipality will only empty one refuse bin per week. Owners can apply for additional refuse bins or a reduction of refuse bins by means of the standard wheelie bin application form. Please note that only green SBM wheelie bins will be emptied as part of our refuse removal level of service.

Ontec (Prepaid Electricity) Vendors

Saldanha Bay Municipality has 69 registered Ontec vendors supplying prepaid electricity to residents and businesses within the municipal area. All Vendors are appointed on the NRS 047 standard.

Prepaid electricity can also be purchased at any Saldanha Bay Municipal office. Below are maps of the locations of the Ontec vendors per town in the municipal area.
