Monkey-proof Bins on Trial

Two versions of recycled plastic ‘monkey-proof’ litter bins (from different suppliers) will shortly be trialled: One outside Sandbar and the other in front of the Umdloti Commercial Centre.

The bins have been designed at our request to prevent monkeys digging into the litter on the ‘collection’ side, with an adjacent closed compartment to store the full bags until they are collected by the municipality.

Assuming the bins are successful in preventing wind-blown litter, we will soon be looking for sponsors. We imagine that many complexes on the North Beach Road will be happy to sponsor a bin or two. More details will be forthcoming when we have finalised the design and pricing.
