THE KwaDukuza Municipality Waste Department has launched a new and innovative way for waste minimisation, which will comply with the Waste Management Act.

The pilot project which entails waste being put into separate bins is currently being tested in the CBD and is designed to accommodate glass, paper, plastic and general waste.

KDM waste manager Wilson Mhlongo said that this new system will assist in waste minimisation in the CBD and will make it easy to recycle.

“As it is still a pilot project it is only found in Ward 19 and with the way it is designed we had in mind the vandalism factor, but we can assure you this is well constructed and won’t be easily vandalised,” said Mhlongo.

The project will be rolled out to more wards in the municipality within the year.
