It is great news that starting from TODAY – St Francis can recycle bottles and cans, thanks to Kouga Municipality and the Kromme Enviro-Trust. The Council has provided two skips in the municipal yard strictly for cans and glass bottles.
It won’t be necessary to wash out the bottles and cans, just drop them off whenever you’re passing. The municipal yard is on St Francis Drive, next to the fire station – look for the banner on the fence.
A municipal worker will be on duty to assist – feel free to show him your appreciation.
Great news – BUT
Tin and glass will, given time degrade, plastic will not and plastic is threatening our ocean. Surely it would be better to have a plastic recycling skip.Come on municipality one more skip won’t break the bank and we really have to start making a concerted effort to get rid of plastic.
