Recycling Points

As some of you may already have noticed, the recycling igloos at the Edgemead Library have been removed. Their new home is now alongside the existing igloos at the Edgemead Shopping Centre.

If you have items other than those that can be dropped off at the igloos you can visit the Tygerdal, Welgelegen or 5th Avenue Parow drop off sites.  The following items can be dropped off: Paper, Plastics, Cardboard, Metal, Glass bottles, Tetra-Pek, Polystyrene, Electronic Waste, Mixed Recyclables and other materials. Mixed recyclables e.g. mingled paper, plastics etc. These recyclables are not sorted into different recyclable streams. Any “other” recyclables apart from what is listed in the table above, e.g. white goods, wood, bricks, etc.

These materials are then taken to the recycling companies in the industry, such as, Consol, Mondi, SA Metal, Recycling associations, etc.

You can locate all these sites from the map page.

There are two versions: One of a smaller size, but noticeably lower quality images. The higher quality version will look much better, but is not recommended for people with slow internet connections.
