The SAAMBR educators attended a presentation at uShaka Sea World on the orange bag programme and other recycling projects within eThekwini Municipality. This training was to provide a greater understanding on what happens with house-hold waste. With landfills in Durban fast filling up and some closing, it is very important that more recyclable waste is collected for recycling. The Marianhill landfill site was commissioned in 2007, with a life expectancy of 38 years. This landfill is reaching capacity quickly, and is likely to be closed in the next year or two, having only served a life span of 11 years.
The team then visited the KwaMashu Buy Back Centre. They were shown how orange municipal bags (for paper and plastic) are brought in, weighed, opened and sorted according to material type. They were instructed on which recyclables are used to produce various items, and how the recycling process generates a job market. Of the 100 tons of waste brought to this recycling centre, only 4 tons is diverted to landfill. This is a huge plus for the environment.
