Knowledge is power. Please dispose of these items responsibly and don’t allow them to end up in a landfill.
The Sustainable Sea Trust has an interactive map that shows thousands of collectors, recyclers, depots, landfills, swap shops and buy-back centres in most major centres in South Africa.
If you live in the Western Cape, the Green Map has a list of recycling companies that cover different areas of Cape Town. Some offer collections; others have drop-off points.
Some suburbs in South Africa have recycling collection services run by civic associations or community groups for a monthly fee.
For more remote suburbs in South Africa, search community Facebook pages or a local directory for recycling depots and drop-off points.
