WE ARE DROWNING IN RUBBISH!

Johannesburg is running out of landfills in which to dispose of our rubbish.

According to City officials, in a few years time we won’t have anywhere to dump our refuse, while the amount of refuse generated continues to increase.

A partial answer is to recycle that percentage of refuse which can be recycled – and its actually a very big percentage!

In Killarney-Riviera we have a project running with an established organisation called Dasa Services (Pty) Ltd, who have been in the recycling business for about 30 years. They already provide a service to 12 residential buildings and to the Killarney Mall.

You can join this project by phoning Karel at 083 543 4596.

Recycling your refuse not only makes a contribution to the environment, but it will also help us to get rid of vagrants. We have a resident population of vagrants at the corner of 4th Avenue and 7th Street, who vandalise public property as well as create safety and hygiene concerns. They are attracted to our suburb because they make a living by scavenging recyclable refuse out of our dust-bins, which they then sell for a few rands to recycling contractors. We can thus make our suburb a bit less attractive to vagrants by sorting our refuse ourselves, and having a recycling contractor collect those items that have value.

Please do join in, and help make Killarney-Riviera safer as well as greener.
