Rewards day number 1… So far so good!

After a spectacular launch event on the 3rd of September, the Trashback uphinda-phindo project was all systems go, and going is exactly what it has been doing. Since the 3rd, the Hout Bay recycling centre has been seeing a steady flow of Trashback uphinda-phindo participants from the Imizamo Yethu community. As of Friday the 16th September we had recorded the details of over 240 pro-active peeps bringing in recyclables, and wait for it…. we have collected an astounding 1.7 tonnes of mixed recyclables since the launch two weeks ago!

Saturday 17th September 2011, was reward day number 1 and we had goodies to reward 50 Top collectors for their amazing efforts over the last two weeks. These committed collectors were notified via sms and most of them came in to collect their rewards, leaving with smiles from ear to ear. The top collectors who didn’t manage to come in on the reward day have been reminded that they can come in next week to get grab their well earned rewards.

We have also decided to run the reward days every Saturday to ensure momentum, so the next rewards day will be on the 24th of September 2011. Keep following our progress and please help us spread the word by liking or facebook page. Also, any suggestions, contacts or ideas are always welcome.

There is much work left to do and a few kinks to be ironed out, but so far so good. Stay awesome Cape Town, regards the Trashback team.

  1. Isandlwana Lodge in KZN is interested in learning more about the initiative in Hout Bay. We would like o see a recycling center in this community and have discussed involving the schools in the project.

    The Wild Foundation, a US based NGO, may be interested in getting involved. They are very active in this community and we work closely with them on community projects. I have written to the President of Wild and their SA representative in Durban to ask if they are interested in getting involved in a re-cycling effort here. The trouble is budget but even if they cannot contribute funds, I hope they will be willing to help in other ways. They also have a local coordinator int his village.

    Will you ask someone to contact me on pat@isandlwana.co.za or tel. 031 271 8304.
    Thank you.
