Recycling is one of those simple yet powerful actions. It’s not just about separating your waste; it’s about giving a new life to materials that would otherwise end up in our overflowing landfills. Imagine if every bottle, can, and piece of paper you threw away could be transformed into something useful again. That’s the magic of recycling!

Here in Johannesburg, we have the opportunity to turn the tide on waste. By recycling, we conserve precious resources, save energy, and reduce pollution. Think of it as doing a small part to combat climate change right from your home. Plus, recycling helps create jobs and supports our local economy. So, not only are you helping the environment, but you’re also contributing to a sustainable future for our community. 

Whole Earth Recycling is waste management and reycling company that actively collects in our area and you may have noticed residents placing blue plastic bags outside their homes on Tuesdays. These are collected by Whole Earth recycling and sorted at their facility in Strijdompark.

Whole Earth Recycling was founded at Cluny Farm in 2007 with just four sorters. Their intention – to provide a reliable and hassle-free recycling solution to people interested in recycling, but who didn’t quite know where to start. Eventually, Whole Earth found a home in Strijdom Park, where they launched a project to uplift the community through job creation and education.

Whole Earth Recycling collects different recyclable materials which are sorted by Hawk Flight, a group of 24 sorters who generate an income for themselves by sorting and selling the materials to local buy-back centres.

This year, in July 2022, they launched the Whole Earth Organic Farm, extending their recycling solutions to include organic kitchen waste composting making Whole Earth Johannesburg’s first official large-scale wet and dry recycling curb side collectors!

Whole Earth also recycles all electronic goods, batteries and light bulbs.
