RECYCLING

YOUR KLOOF RECYCLING DROP-OFF SITE

As of June 2013, the Drop Off Site in Emolweni Road is no longer supported and backed up by KKBA committee members.

Due to a decision by DSW to officially hand over the running to Ernest Guguthe, with whose standards we were dissatisfied, we have sadly, had to dissociate ourselves with the site.

We fully support recycling, and encourage the Kloof residents to continue supporting all initiatives, including the kerbside weekly pick up of orange bags, and the Kloof Senior Primary initiative. It is just that we cannot as an association stand back and see all the voluntary work that we put in, being constantly jeopardised by those who have such low standards for the site.

If DropOff site remains a mess, or the site is not open at advertised times, it is your prerogative as a concerned Kloof resident, to lodge a complaint, as often as necessary, to DSW: Nana Ndlovu on 031 303 1665. Your other recourse is the municipal Public Health department on 031 311 6956.

We are investigating possibilities of accepting some of these in the future, but this list remains until such time we can notify you to this effect.

RECYCLING TIPS

Separate at home if possible, in boxes you reserve for these categories; pop them into your car, drop them off at the centre, in the separation bins provided, and take the boxes home to start the separation process again.

We do not accept black and orange bags filled with mixed rubbish, as this is how we have been caught by offenders to mix in their wet waste, along with recyclables, and just leave it there for us to sieve through!

Rinse out food containers in leftover dishwashing water in your sink eg yoghurt cups, milk cartons, which can become a contamination and fly attraction issue if left for too long.
