Technology: Waste recycling and composting
Project developer: Thrive Hout Bay/ PACE
VERS: 3 847 tCO2 audited to date.
Project description: A social enterprise started by Thrive Hout Bay saw residents of Imizamo Yethu township in Hout Bay begin recycling in 2009. To date the project has prevented more than 2 600 tons of waste from going to landfill where it would have turned to methane and CO2 (2 500 tCO2 equivalent) and placed further stresses on Cape Town’s solid waste resources, land and water. By sorting and selling the recycled waste the project has created employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for residents of Hout Bay.
