Reducing waste

Delegates from 27 companies from the Voortrekker Road Corridor met for a workshop at Hotel Verde, near Cape Town International Airport, on Wednesday July 13 to see how they can share resources and so reduce waste to landfills and their use of raw materials. The free workshop, arranged by the Greater Tygerberg Partnership (GTP), Greencape and the City of Cape Town, was part of the Western Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme (WISP). The aim was to find resources one company isn’t using so they can be used by another. Pictured are Emmanuel Kasese from Greenscape’s WISP team and Kirsten Sloth-Nielsen from GTP.
