There is a fully functional recycling plant on the outskirts of the town, however, the future of this plant depends on the much needed support of the community. The more we recycle, the less garbage winds up in our landfills and the side of the roads. We urge residents and visitors to become involved by assisting with the following:
Provide a meal to the team, once every 6 weeks, when the material gets loaded.
Provide / donate old fencing to assist the team in maintaining the fence surrounding the plant.
Drop recyclable materials off at the site. Below is a list of materials currently processed there.
For more information contact Pieter du Toit at firstname.lastname@example.org or 084 581 3166.
