Our waste management division has started providing waste management and recycling services at the UNISA Campus in Parow. Since the commencement of the contract in February, we have managed to reduce waste-to-landfill by 40.3%. This means that more waste is being recycled and re-used than is being transferred to landfill sites.
Going forward, we will also be converting garden waste to compost which can in turn be re-used in the campus’s gardens.
We welcome UNISA Parow Campus, and look forward to a long sustainability journey with them.
Should you require waste management and recycling services do get in touch with us on 021 418 4000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We partner with Grand Foods Bakery on a separate-at-source pilot project
In our drive to play a more active role in our customers’ waste management journeys, we partnered with Grand Foods Bakery, the manufacturers of Dunkin’Donuts doughnuts in South Africa, in a pilot separate-waste-at-source programme. The initiative is a response to reduce overfilled landfill sites since separation-at-source eases the strain on our natural resources, contributes to our Green Economy, and creates jobs and business opportunities in the waste sector. During July, the pilot project facilitated the reduction of waste to landfill by 76%, thereby reinforcing Grand Foods Bakery’s commitment to doing business responsibly through their waste recycling initiatives in order that they may impact the environment in a positive way. Of the 2.03 Tonnes of waste that were recycled in July, only 0.72 Tonnes were sent to landfill. For further information regarding waste management, please contact Junaid Kader on 021 418 4000 or email@example.com.
Our waste management and landscaping teams participated at a National Water Week event at GrandWest by assisting with the clean-up of the Elsies River Canal which runs alongside the entertainment complex. Our business is dependent on the use of water, we therefore take water conservation very seriously, and do all we can to ensure that a water-saving culture is promoted as part of everything we do.
Our cleaning manager has managed to secure an expo stand for AfriServ at the Facilities’ Management (FM) Expo which was held in Cape Town on 18 October. We managed to establish and re-establish a few good industry connections at this event, and look forward to FM Expo 2018! Thank you to our partners, Caturra Coffee, who collaborated with us on the day by providing great coffee to people who visited our space.
We’re on a journey with our client, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World, to ensure that they manage their waste in a responsible and sustainable way. They have recently undergone a waste management compliance audit of their complex and facilities, and we are pleased to report that the auditors have awarded them 100% compliance! Well done and congratulations GrandWest!
