It is in the interest of all residents of Mossel Bay to support the Municipality’s waste recycling initiatives to protect the environment for future generations and also because the cost of establishing landfill areas and dumping sites, which are funded from ratepayers’ money, is very high. Residents are therefore urged to use the blue bags issued to them for this purpose.
The following items can be recycled: Photostat paper; laser print paper; computer paper; all writing paper, letterheads and envelopes (regardless of colour); newspapers, magazines, books and pamphlets; all cardboard boxes and packaging material; cardboard displays; clean wrapping and packaging plastic; clean plastic shopping bags; plastic as well as cool drink and milk bottles; all beverage and canned fruit cans; glass bottles and jars (all containers to be rinsed).
The following are NOT suitable for recycling: Any wet, smelly or soiled materials; diapers; carbons; chemically treated facsimile or heat sensitive paper; ice cream sweet, biscuit and chips wrapping and packets; used paper towels and paper serviettes; plastic-coated paper; wax paper; milk cartons; tinfoil; cling wrap; polystyrene food containers; cellophane; window glass; light bulbs; neon tubes, porcelain and pottery.
