Maintaining a garden often involve cutting down trees or trimming branches and beddings. This type of waste is perfect to cut into pieces and produce compost at home, but residents do not always have the space on their property to store such bulky waste.

The Langeberg Municipality therefore offer free of charge drop-off facilities where clean green waste can be disposed of. The drop-off facilities operate six days a week:

  • Mondays – Thursdays from 08:00 – 16:00,
  • Fridays from 08:00 – 15:00,
  • Saturdays from 08:00 – 14:00,
  • Public Holidays from 08:00 – 16:00.
  • Closed on Sundays, Christmas Day, and New
    Year's Day.

Garden Refuse Drop-Off Facilities:

  • McGregor Drop-off Facility take up to 2m³ per day.
  • Montagu Transfer station is located outside Montagu on the road between Montagu and Barrydale, taking up to 2m³ per day.
  • Robertson Compost Facility on the road between Robertson and McGregor, before the bridge has no capacity limit.
  • Ashton Transfer station is on the road past the Ashton Traffic Department taking up to 2m³ per day.
  • Bonnievale Waste Disposal Facility located past the Bonnievale graveyard, toward the informal housing area has no capacity limit.

Should you not have the means to transport bulky waste, clients can call the Solid Waste Management office in Bonnievale at 023 616 8000 or send an email to Judith Davids at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for an application form.

  • R196.00 (incl Vat) per m3

No green waste may be put out together with the usual household waste. Due to the separate logistical arrangement to dispose of green waste, the municipality will unfortunately not remove green waste with other household waste.
The green waste follow a Microbial Composting (CMC) process in Robertson that provide both carbon and nitrogen and include leaves, straw, plant pruning, lawn cuttings, saw dust and vegetable garden waste.

The quality end product is USDA certified organic fertilizer and suitable for the use by the organic farmer. The compost and green chippings are available for sale to the public per/m³.
