The Executive Mayor of Kimberley, Mangaliso Matika, opened the revamped landfill complex of about R28 million yesterday.
The upgrade aims to improve security, curb criminal activity and allow community members to process recyclable materials.
The site has been upgraded with an access control point, weighbridge, toilets & showers, several high mast lights, security fencing, a garden refuse drop op point and 24 hour onsite security.
The municipality expects the upgrades and increased security will help curb the widespread problem of illegal dumping in Kimberley.
