By now, we all know that our earth is taking strain, leading to many of us making adjustments in an effort to ensure greener living. Unfortunately, finding affordable ways in which to recycle has proven to be a challenge for most people in South Africa thus far!
Not only is there a lack of recycling companies in most areas, but the ones that do exist often charge a hefty fee for their services. Luckily, there are ways around this. Here’s how to start a budget-friendly Sappi recycling project at your digz…
Chat to Your Mates
In order for the project to be a success, you will need to chat to your mates and get them on board. The more people who are willing to make the effort to recycle, the better. Think of all of those old study notes and pizza boxes that are going to waste!
All that it takes to make a difference is awareness and an extra bin in your digz.
Contact the Sappi ReFibre Recycling Agent
The good news is that there is a Sappi ReFibre recycling agent right in the heart of Braamies. You can find them at 48 Ameshof Street, or give them a call on 011 407 8300. They will be able to supply you with more information, as well as your very own Sappi paper recycling bin which can be placed in the foyer of your digz.
Just remember to also display a list of the different types of paper that can be recycled on or near the bin itself.
Depending on how much waste paper will be collected, you can organise for the Sappi waste paper agent to pick up the waste on a regular basis. Alternatively, if you have the necessary transport and time on your hands, you can also opt to drop the paper off at the depot yourself. The latter will generally be expected if only small amounts of paper will accumulate within a certain period of time.
See? Making a difference really is as easy as that! Let us know how your paper recycling project turns out by sharing your story, as well as any other recycling tips, on our Facebook page.
