Font size: -+

The Deputy Minister of Environmental Affairs, Ms Barbara Thomson will on 20 April 2017 handover waste pickers’ trolleys to the South African Waste Pickers Association in Mooi River, KwaZulu-Natal.

Waste picking is a livelihood that is accessible to marginalised individuals of society. These individuals have in the past, converted retail store trolleys into a convenient mode of transport to move the collected waste material to a buy back centre with ease.

The South African Waste Pickers Association, Groundwork, Petco and MPACT are among the organisations that have partnered with the Department of Environmental Affairs to support emerging waste pickers through the handover initiative. Despite a total estimated value of R25 billion to the South African economy, the current rate of waste recycling has not been maximized.

The event will be used as an opportunity for government’s recognition of the important role that waste pickers play in the recycling industry.

The day’s programme starts with a Community clean-up around the area.

Event Details:
DATE:              20 April 2017
TIME:                08:30 AM
VENUE:           Bruntville Sportsfield, Mooiriver, Kwa-Zulu Natal
