South Africa is not really big on sorting your waste, but it seriously needs to start changing. It is not as difficult as most people anticipate.
Sorting your waste can be done is so many different ways. Start off by categorising your waste by plastics, paper, compost, glass and anything that contains hazardous chemicals. There are a lot of companies that have weekly pickups for paper, plastic, glass and hazardous items, but that doesn't keep you from finding out where drop-off points are for those hazardous chemicals items that you so desperately want to get rid of, but luckily feeling to bad for the environment to throw it in the dustbin. Compost is easy to make at home, all you need is a compost bin or a corner in your garden for those unwanted fruits and vegetables and to top it off, you know how great compost is for your garden!
Let us start making a difference to our environment, make the earth a happy place again.
