Waste Management services

Waste-to-Value Rebate Program

Through our waste-to-value rebate program, We ensure that clients receive rebates for waste sent for recycling. This program incentivizes waste reduction efforts and promotes a circular economy.

We started our Buyback division to give everyone an opportunity to recycle.As part of this program, we provide support with transporting of your material and make sure that we provide a selling point for you.

How it works

We have Material Recycling Facilities (MRF) in Gauteng, Durban, Bloemfontein, and Cape Town. Individuals, small recyclers, and anyone wanting to sell material are welcome to drop recycling products on a daily or weekly basis.

Products that we trade

In an ever-changing and highly competitive industry where products being traded changes daily, people often fight for the best prices on the trading of material.

We have a team of people that specialise in material and trading who constantly negotiate the best prices for buying and selling, so that we’re able to give you the best prices on materials. We also give guidance on which materials are best to trade at the current time in the markets and how to recognise each material and their characteristics.

Here are a few types of material that we trade with and tips on how to recognise them:

  • PET – This is the technical term for your average cool drink bottle. As can be seen in the image, it can be classified easily by the dot it usually has in the middle at the bottom of the bottle. The important thing with PET is to keep the different colours separated.

  • HL1 – This is nothing other than normal office white paper, be careful not to mix any other paper in between.
  • HD – A simple plastic milk container. It can be identified usually by the line that goes from one end of the bottle to the other if you look underneath.
  • K4 – The most commonly used form of cardboard. For the common citizen, this is the box you use to pack furniture in when you move.
  • Aluminium cans – Not only does the content taste good, if you collect a lot of these, you can earn yourself quite a good income.
  • PP Woven bags – Your standard maize meal bag.
  • Glass – Glass as a product is also not simply just glass, unfortunately as with a lot of other material types, not all glass is recyclable. A good example is a beer bottle.

Waste Streams

Here is what happens to the waste:

  • Wet Waste/Organic Waste is separated from the Non-Recyclable or contaminated general waste.
  • Organic/Wet waste can be used for Composting.
  • General Waste is removed to a registered landfill site for disposal.
  • Organic Waste
  • Food Waste
  • Liquid Waste

All of the above is used for composting.

Recyclables are sorted per category

  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Plastic
  • Tetrapack
  • Glass
  • Steel

Sorted Materials are collected on site and taken to a Material Recycling Facility (MRF) where it is baled. Materials are then sold to recyclers.

Our clients receive a REBATE for all recyclable materials sold from their site.
