IN this day and age recycling has to become a way of life, and Waterfall College pupils Kyle Wiesner and Sidney Reed are promoting this in their community by picking up recyclable material such as cans and bottles and cardboard in the Hillcrest area.

The Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association (KHBA) is proud of the pupils’ efforts and awarded them certificates of community service.

Marge Mitchell, KHBA chairperson, said the community needs to be more responsible and also recycle. She said that there is a drop-off centre site in Delamore Road which residents can use to discard their recyclable material.

Mitchell reminds people that the site only collects glass bottles, paper, cardboard, cans and polystyrene and asked residents not to bring windscreens, plate glass, crockery, tyres, hosepipes, paint cans or garden refuse as those belong at the Shongweni Landfill Site.

“I ask the community to use the centre responsibly.”

Mitchell also encouraged more pupils to help the association and keep the area beautiful for the benefit of all. - Supplied.
