How to participate with recycling at home:
Rent-A-Drum distributes free clear plastic bags to households in certain areas in the capital city, Windhoek.
Households can separate their recyclables from general waste and place all their recyclable waste (paper, plastic, glass and tins) into one clear bag.
Households can extract 60% to 80% of their total waste if they separate their recyclable materials.
This means that if you recycle well, you can end up with only 20% to 40% of general waste.
Currently, Rent-A-Drum’s tailings represent between 7 and 9% of total recyclable waste collected, below the 10% industry standard, we therefor wish to encourage households to partake in recycling.
