Kids at the Recycling Centre
Each person in South Africa produces about 0,5kgs of waste every day. This is usually taken away and dumped in large spaces and buried. This is unsightly and often unhygienic. It also uses land that could be put to better use. A large percentage of this waste could be reused or recycled. By doing this we can protect our resources, save energy, reduce pollution and reuse waste materials to create new useful objects.
If you have committed yourself to this worthy cause there is nothing more frustrating than not knowing what to do with your accumulation of waste material. Delta would like to help you by providing some useful contact numbers which you could cut out and keep in a handy place for future reference!!
Recycling containers have been donated and installed by TOTAL SA. AppleGreen, a collection company contracted to TOTAL SA, collect the recyclables on a regular basis. Many local residents, park-users and DEC staff, programme participants regularly drop off their recyclables.
