Waste Management & Recycling

Each year in Hessequa alone we throw away tonnes of waste a lot of it is hazardous.

It is clear that treating and disposing of all this material- without harming the environment – becomes a major headache.

Land filling not only takes up more and more valuable land space, it also causes air, water and soil pollution, discharging carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into the atmosphere and chemicals and pesticides into the earth and groundwater. This, in turn, is harmful to human health, as well as to plants and animals.

An easy way of sorting and recycling:

Paper
Plastic
Metal
Glass
Organic
Not suitable for recycling

Please collect transparent bags any municipal office. You can put them out with your other bags on your day of collection.
