Everybody, every company, organisation or business has waste or generates waste. Waste is the biggest contributor for filling up landfills. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about our company, Waste Carriers.
Waste Carriers is an accredited waste management service provider, accredited by the City of Cape Town to handle all types of waste and also a member of the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa. Since its inception 12 years ago, Waste Carriers has grown from strength to strength. We are owner operated and our extensive fleet of special application vehicles can collect, transport and properly dispose of all forms of liquid, hazardous and solid waste.
We offer a diverse range of on-site management services as well as the collection and safe disposal of hazardous waste such as solid, flammable and other dangerous wastes, toxic to the environment.
The waste is safely disposed of at one of the City of Cape Town’s landfill sites and we are proud to support the City’s initiative to separate and divert recyclable waste that is going to landfill sites.
ALL recyclable and re-usable waste is currently been separated and sorted at our own sorting plant on our premises – THEREFORE we strive to the following;
- 1) Creating an even greener footprint through ensuring less waste ends up at the landfill site.
- 2) Making sure only waste that is destined for the landfill ends up there.
- 3) Striving continuously to ensure that the landfill site is longer preserved.
- 4) Playing our role in striving to preserve the environment according to Section 24 of the constitution.
Waste carriers are also continuously actively involved in waste management education and training workshops for our clients and the broader community to help participants have a better understanding and knowledge about waste minimisation and the safe disposal of all types of waste.
We are socially responsible by supporting several community-based initiatives to uplift the local community. Our services include but are not limited to handling Clean Builders Rubble, Mixed General Waste, Asbestos Disposal and Medical Waste (Infectious or Hazardous).
