REFUSE RECYCLING PROGRAMME

 

Residents of Bergrivier Municipal Area will only be provided with two packs of black bags for the financial period 1 July - 30 June annually. (One black bag per week)

 

This initiative was implemented to motivate you, the public, to be more active in the participation of recycling by using the free of charge transparent refuse bag for recycling purposes and the green bag for garden refuse. The black bags are only to be used for non-recyclables.

 

Black Bags can be collected from the Municipal Offices (Technical Department) during office hours Monday to Friday.

 

You must provide your municipal account with the collection of the black bags.

 

Residents are requested not to place their bags in front of vacant stands or on street corners as the staff will not know who must receive the new bag

 

1.         GREEN PLASTIC BAG

The green plastic bag may only be used for clean garden refuse and only two (2 ) green bags will be removed weekly.

2.         TRANSPARENT PLASTIC BAG

Only clean recyclable material such as tin, paper, plastic and bottles may be placed in the transparent plastic bag and will be removed on your current refuse collection day.

3.         BLACK PLASTIC BAG

Any other wet refuse that you cannot recycle must be placed in the black plastic bag and will be collected on the same day as the transparent plastic Bag
