PMB kerbside recycling project expands

2009-11-27 00:00

TWO more city suburbs — Blackridge and Boughton — are to be added to the growing list of residential areas participating in the kerbside recycling collection project introduced as a pilot scheme in Pietermaritzburg in February.

Residents of Blackridge and Boughton are advised to look out for their supply of orange recycling bags, which will be delivered tomorrow with an information sheet about how and what to recycle.

Chase Valley, Montrose, Prestbury, Athlone, Wembley and Clarendon households will also receive their next threemonth supply of bags tomorrow.

A pilot kerbside collection initiative was introduced to Chase Valley in February. It is a joint initiative of Mondi Recycling and Msunduzi Municipality, with support from the provincial Agriculture and Environmental Affairs Department and Collect-a-Can.

The service is rendered at no cost to households.

Items to be placed in the orange bags include cardboard, paper, plastic and cans.

Residents are asked not to place organic refuse, glass and any non-recyclables into the bags.

The bags will be collected from the verges by Mondi’s agent, Central Waste, on the same day as the local municipal refuse collection.

For inquiries about the kerb-side project, contact Central Waste at 033 397 0758.
