Good day Mr. Lourens.  I feel compelled to bring to your attention the service delivery of one of your WastePlan ambassadors.  I had the pleasure of meeting him this morning when he rang my gate bell to collect my bin which I had neglected to put out last night. His name is Joseph and he was on the 16/07/2013 morning shift in Grandiflora Street, Protea Valley, Bellville (Western Cape). His attitude and professional manner was a welcome surprise and I therefore gladly refer to him as one of your ambassadors who brought credit to your institution. Debbie Marx

South Africa officially has a waste crisis - we are running out of landfill space at an alarming rate.

The new National Environmental Management Waste Act requires commercial and industrial industries and municipalities to develop new Integrated Waste Management Plans to incorporate recycling, and our services aim to help companies to accomplish this.
