DID YOU KNOW?
9 out of 10 people in South Africa indicated they would recycle if it were easier?*
*Survey by one of South Africa’s leading recycling institutions
We as Royal Rubbish Recyclers want to make recycling as “EASY” as possible by
1. The “one bin approach” (all your recycling material can be placed mixed in one bag).
2. Bringing recycling to your home by providing a collection service at you’re doorstep the same day as refuse day.
WHY RECYCLE THIS WAY?
The Department of Environmental Affairs stipulated in their Waste Management Strategy to prioritise the policy approach of separation at source. Separation at source can be explained as the separation of recyclables from other waste at source of origination. Better explained as, recyclables that no longer go to the landfill sites but be separated from the waste by the consumer.
This is preferable since items such as paper will no longer be suitable for recycling if deposited at the landfill. Furthermore the degree of contamination and exposure to sun reduces the recyclables dramatically from being recycled as a sustainable alternative to raw material input.
WHAT DO WE RECYCLE?
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE US:
Medical waste, food, paint cans, electronics, CDs, yard waste, compost and batteries
