OPTION 1 - Collection of Recycling in Refuse Bags

  • On the first collection day of each month, your office will receive blue recycling refuse bags.
  • All of the recyclable materials [hyperlink underlined words to “What Can Be Recycled?” webpage] can be placed in the same blue refuse bags because Hawk Flight, our community group, will sort through them.
  • Please note: we do collect electronic waste, which includes anything with a plug. However, we do not collect batteries and light bulbs.
  • On the set collection day, the Whole Earth Recycling team will collect the refuse bags from a designated collection point (usually an existing waste area). To this end, we request that all recycling is taken to this one point, so it can be collected efficiently by the team.
  • If you’d prefer to store the refuse bags in a wheelie bin, we’re happy for you to do so, but request that the contents of the bins are stored in the blue recycling refuse bags provided. Alternatively, the bins can be emptied into bulk bags in the waste area and our team will collect these.

OPTION 2 – Collection of Recycling in Wheelie Bins

  • Your Complex/Estate can purchase a Whole Earth Recycling wheelie bin for each unit/house, or for several units/houses to share. If the Complex/Estate has existing wheelie bins they’d prefer to use, we’ll provide Whole Earth Recycling stickers at a nominal cost to ensure the wheelie bins filled with recycling materials are easy to identify.
  • We’ll provide your with 10 blue recycling refuse bags per bin on a monthly basis. Extra bags can be purchased at R11.00 per roll of 10 blue bags.
  • Residents can place all of their recyclable materials into the same refuse bags, because Hawk Flight will take care of the sorting.
  • On the designated collection day, Whole Earth will empty the wheelie bins.
  • Cardboard can be flattened and placed next to the wheelie bins if it is too bulky. There is no extra cost for this collection.
  • Wheelie bins can be collected from the curb or from a designated collection area. If it’s the latter, we ask that all of the recycling is taken to these points so it can easily be accessed by the Whole Earth team.

OPTION 3 – On-Site Waste Management

  • With this option, we provide your Complex/Estate with one or more on-site sorters on a designated day of the week or every day of the week, as required.
  • The sorters will remove all of the recyclable materials that they are able to remove from the wheelie bins before they are emptied into the waste compactor or placed outside for general municipal refuse collection.
  • The recyclables will be sorted into different categories and placed into bulk bags in preparation for a weekly, or more frequent, collection. They will be collected when they are full.
