Why Recycle ?

Waste recycling presents an opportunity to save our natural resources, reduce environmental impact of waste disposed at landfills, and create employment opportunities. In South Africa, the majority of commercial waste recycling initiatives has been developed on an ad hoc basis and has been driven by the private sector.

Waste Management services rely heavily on landfills for the disposal of waste, as over 90% of all South African’s waste is disposed of at landfill sites. The reliance on waste disposal by landfills has limited the incentive to devise alternative methods of dealing with waste.

Negative Impacts

The combined pollution of the air, water and land, contributes ultimately to global warming, ground water contamination in terms of both the waste degradation of the fibrous materials and more significantly the leakages of dyes and other harmful chemicals into the water systems.
