Recycling in Organised Communities
MamaEarth provides recycling bins to organized communities for collection of paper, plastic, cans, glass and e-waste. We partner with Mveledzo Recyclers, an Alex small enterprise, who collect the waste and sell it for profit.
We ask any organized community in Johannesburg, Sandton or Randburg to identify a place and contact person who can send messages to the residents who collect and deposit their waste in the bins.
Plastics are the main product recycled. One of our goals is to increase the recycling of e waste which is toxic to the water table and offers good value to recyclers.
