Green is go - Red is stop
Stop, think twice about where you put your waste – is it something that can be recycled? South African Tourism is challenging you to consider where you put your waste and to encourage you to help Meetings Africa with recycling. The ZF Cleaning Team is on-site to do the cleaning and recycling but they need your help.
A two-bin system has been implemented at Meetings Africa where people need to consider if a product can be recycled (plastic, paper, tins, glass) or if should be sent to landfill (also known as “the rubbish dump”). The basic rule of thumb is if it is still relatively clean and can be recycled, then please place it in the recycling bin. If it is something that is “dirty, sticky or gooey” then rather place it in the waste bin.
The cleaning team will be moving through the venue collecting waste and recycling. They then separate the recycling into glass, plastic, tin, cardboard and paper so that this can be recycled. For this specific event they are calculating the amount of recycling and waste so that this can provide a baseline for future events.
If you want to know more, have a chat to the people at the Event Greening Stand (stand 501c – on the right just before you leave the venue) or visit our website. The eco audit is being done by icologie – intelligent sustainable solutions - and will be made available online here on completion.
