WASTE SUSTAINABILITY

We have a long way to go before even Recycling, Reusing, Reducing and Rethinking becomes mainstream in SA – when it’s a profitable and popular business venture and when households and other waste producers consistently pursue it.

Sadly, in the City of Cape Town, precious little waste is recycled, re-used, reduced, re-purposed… 15 years into our UniCity we would have expected it to have been prioritised given our critical land shortage for human habitation and economic growth, instead of building more landfills and extending their lives and geographic footprints.
