Recycling collection service returns

The City of Cape Town’s Think Twice recycling collection service has resumed.

After a 10-day hiatus, the City of Cape Town’s Think Twice recycling collection service resumed recently.

The absence led to dirt strewn across the streets of Kraaifontein and prompted the City on Thursday July 1 to issue a notice to residents warning of the unavailability of the service “while contracts for the service are being finalised”.

The service returned on Monday July 12.

The Think Twice Programme is a recycling initiative targeting residential properties across the city. The aim is to make the public think about the things they throw away.

The contract expired at the end of June before it could be extended, leading to a temporary disruption of the service, said water and waste mayoral committee member Xanthea Limberg

There are currently 69 000 green-lid bins in Kraaifontein.
