SA’s National Recycling Day, on Friday 14 September, is the perfect opportunity for South Africans to take a more active role in recycling especially in the home.

The volume of paper recovered for recycling in South Africa has increased by almost a third over the past decade and could be 63% by 2017, according to statistics from the Paper Recycling Association of South Africa.

Simply put your Paper and Cardboard into your Ronnie Bag (If you don't have one, stack your paper & cardboard under a brick) and leave it on your Kerbside pavement before 7:30am on your collection day.

Mpact Recycling is partnering with South African municipalities to increase recycling, creating jobs and reducing the strain on landfill sites.

The recycling industry plays a vital role in sustainable development in South Africa, particularly with respect to the environment and job creation.
