Xanthea Limberg says there are a number of options available for recycling for the City of Cape Town.

With new regulations that came into effect on 1 July that require Johannesburg residents to separate their waste prior to collection, questions have been asked as to what is expected of Cape Town residents.

Mayoral Committee Member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, City of Cape Town Xanthea Limberg says at this stage there are a number of options available for recycling.

It includes things such as the City's drop off sites and there are 20 of those and can be accessed free of charge to drop off your waste, including your recyclable materials.

Xanthea Limberg, MMC of Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, City of Cape Town

And we have our curbside collection programme which we have just mentioned and that is a service that is offered to 150 households at the moment but we are currently looking at attempting to expand on that in different ways.

Xanthea Limberg, MMC of Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, City of Cape Town

She adds that then there are private recycling collectors, private buyback centres as well as private drop off centres and waste exchange programmes.

The City attempts to partner with many of those private operators as well by promoting them on our city waste recyclers app and it's an app that you can download by accessing the city's website so you can find out what available options are for recycling.

She says the City's intention is to ensure that they can expand the lifespan of their three landfill sites and already one of them in Bellville South will be closing in September of this year.
