Recycling

Solms Delta > Environment > Recycling

 

It is with great excitement that we welcome Lorenzo Vlotman to Solms-Delta. Lorenzo is our new Waste Disposal Clerk, and is responsible for our newly established recycling site. He is receiving training from Solutions for Waste in order to learn how to separate our waste into the different waste streams; glass, cardboard, cans, cardboard and plastic. This sorted waste will then be weighed, documented and removed to a central recycling plant.

Nico Jansen, the Estate Manager, will assist Lorenzo by educating the Solms-Delta employees and residents on waste recycling. His team will collect all the waste generated on the farm and deliver it to Lorenzo for a final sorting.

As a flagship project for the Western Cape’s 110% Green campaign, Solms-Delta has made a commitment to start recycling, reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill, create jobs and educate our employees and residents about caring for our environment and preserving our natural resources.

 

Four good reasons to recycle:

  • The Western Cape does not have enough landfill sites.
  • A major contributor to greenhouse gases is Methane gas. Methane gas is mostly released from landfill sites. By recycling you can help prevent global warming.
  • The materials that you recycle will go back into the production streams and it will save huge amounts of energy and raw materials.
  • If you care about the environment, it is the right thing to do!
