Business Recycling with Clearer Conscience in Cape Town
Keep the office eco-friendly with an effective corporate recycling collection scheme
This female-run business in Malmesbury are turning recycled paper products into beautiful flowers and herbs, called Growing Paper.
As our environment comes increasingly under threat from pollution, mass production and mass waste, it becomes even more important to implement a recycling programme not only at home but in a corporate setting as well. Now, thanks to Clearer Conscience, a premier recycling company in Cape Town that collects reusable discarded materials from businesses and allocates them to relevant depots, it’s also far easier and more effortless to put one into practice.
Recognising that corporates and major institutions toss out a large amount of potentially useful matter daily, this innovative curbside collection service was established in 2008 to make the salvage and recycling of such materials a viable option for companies intent on having a positive impact on the planet.
The waste removal enterprise is committed to saving businesses significant time and effort (and the worry of having to find out where to recycle) by picking up recyclable glass, paper, plastic and tin directly from office premises and taking it to suitable drop-off points, most of which are worthy charity organisations that benefit financially from selling waste on to major recycling plants.
As they’re set on tailoring their services to individual business needs, on prior arrangement, they will also attempt to find appropriate places for even slightly more unconventional, hard-to-recycle items if they’re present in bulk. What’s more, for the most part, companies that partner with Clearer Conscience will have waste fetched at an agreed-upon regular interval (anywhere from as often as twice weekly to once monthly) and will be allocated a particular pick-up day depending on their location in the Mother City; however, the recycling enterprise is also willing to shift arrangements and do special collections if the need arises.
In addition, because the company recognises that it can be complex for large organisations with many employees to implement a cohesive business recycling system, they’ll gladly put together informative presentations for staff members and highlight issues such as how and what to recycle, how to separate materials into distinct bins, and the benefits of recycling at work.
Not to mention, so that offices can assess what sort of volumes they acquire weekly (most will be surprised to see how much ‘trash’ is actually recoverable) and how often they might require the services of Clearer Conscience, each corporate client is entitled to a four-week trial period, after which time a specific package that’s most appropriate for individual needs can be arranged.
In essence, in every way, this commendable venture makes doing something positive for the environment and for the community a simple, convenient, not to mention affordable (packages are priced from only R95 a month) process for socially-responsible companies.
