Saldanha Bay Youth Council’s Colourful Community Development Project
On Saturday 21 October 2016, the Saldanha Bay Municipality’s Youth Council kicked off their community development project in Louwville, Vredenburg. The young councillors cleaned and painted five bus stops in Louwville, outside the Weston High School.
The Youth Council urges the community to take ownership of municipal infrastructure and to report any vandalism or damage of bus stops to the municipality’s 24-hour call centre at 022 701 7061.
Saldanha Bay Municipality, in collaboration with Arcelor Mittal and Sea Harvest, partnered in the Community Awards Project in 2016 to recognise and celebrate outstanding community service and contributions rendered within the Saldanha Bay Municipal area. The Community Awards consists of six categories which is used to nominate persons or organisations through a formal nomination process, followed by an evaluation and gala ceremony.
Saldanha Bay Municipality hereby extends a call to all corporate businesses to partner in the second Community Awards Project in 2017, which will culminate in a gala event in March 2018.
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.
Saldanha Bay Municipality has approved level 4 water restrictions, effective from 1 September 2017 until further notice. All water users are required to immediately use less water and must attempt to use a maximum of 100 litres per person per day.
