Separation at Source programme begins

The City of Joburg has commenced its Separation at Source recycling programme to encourage residents and businesses to start separating dry recyclable waste (plastic, paper, glass and cans) and household generated garden waste for the purpose of re-use, recycling, composting or further processing of these materials. To those who are already doing it, well done and thank you! The City is fast running out of landfill space and needs to reduce waste going to landfills.
