Tell me more about the service

Once you have signed up to our service recycling is easy.

Just put all your recyclable materials into your recycling bins and put the bin out on your pavement outside your home or complex or office gate.

Collections take place between 7:30 and 5:00 on your allocated collection day.

Please place the bin outside before 7:30am.

Do I need to sort the recycling?

NO. There is no need to sort any of your recyclables; we will do that for you.

By sticking to the “What to recycle list” and ensuring that the materials you are recycling are the correct materials and that they are clean.

Also try to recycle as much as possible.

Every little bit helps.

Waste removal is the biggest expense in recycling and that is why we would like to stress the importance of the correct materials being sent for recycling.

In most cases if they aren’t rinsed we aren’t able to recycle them so please just run them under the tap for a second before dropping them in the bin.

This mainly applies to plastic containers, sauce bottles and polystyrene trays.

Tell me more about the bins?


The bins we use are blue and white 240Litre wheelie bins that are labeled as recycling bins.

They are easily distinguishable from those of the municipality.

Should you need more than one bin an additional bin can be supplied at an additional cost.

You may use your own bin with a sticker at R35-00 or buy one from us at R550.







What can I put into the bins?

We recycle all forms of recyclable waste.

This includes paper, plastic, cans/tins, glass and certain types of polystyrene.
