We all consume milk, soft drinks, juice and water on a daily basis and throw the plastic away, without even thinking that once in the waste stream, it will end up on a landfill site.

Now you can start recycling and contribute to a cleaner environment through supporting the Re-use, Reduce, Recycle and Love Earth Plastic Bottle Cap project.

“All you have to do is to keep a 2 or 2,5 litre soft drink bottle or a 2 litre milk bottle at the office or in your kitchen and fill it with plastic bottle caps that would normally end up in the bin,” said Melinda Labuscagne, Waste Exchange Project Manager.

Once your bottle it is full, you can drop it off at one of the project’s drop-off points.

“For each full bottle received, Timber Solutions will donate R1 to an organisation providing shelter to women and children affected by domestic violence,” said Labuscagne.

Plastic will be used by the local firm, Timber Solutions, in the manufacturing of their recycled plastic furniture.

How to get involved:

)If any businesses/organisations are willing to come on board as drop-off points, they can contact Melinda on 041 506 5466 or Linda on 084 964 9026.
