It was a pleasure to attend the Green Point Rate Payers AGM last night and to mark their 15 years as a community organisation, working for the benefit of a better Green Point!
From Nicola Jowell on Facebook:
I will join the department to do a handout of 300 Compost bins on the Promenade on the 17th September from 9am. Please bring along your ID and municipal invoice.
City resumes rollout of home composting containers
After a lockdown-induced break in the programme, the City this week resumed the rollout of home composting containers at Sub-Council offices. This forms part of efforts to reduce carbon emissions from the breakdown of organic waste at landfills.
The City of Cape Town is happy to announce that the rollout of Home Composting containers resumed this week in Sub-council 19. The City of Cape Town plans to distribute a total of 600 containers per Sub-council area in the next phase of the home composting rollout. This phase of the programme will run between July and November 2022. A total of 12 600 containers will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
So far, 300 containers were distributed to prospective home composters on Monday 18 July, and a further 300 will be up for grabs at the Fish Hoek Civic Hall tomorrow from 14:00 to 18:00. From here the programme will move to Sub-council 1, with 300 containers available for collection at the Saxonsea City Hall on Monday 25 July 2022, and 300 more available from Blaauwberg Community Hall on Saturday 23 July 2022. The rollout will then move through to other areas. Residents should please keep an eye on the following www.capetown.gov.za/CompostingProgramme to be notified when the programme will be in their area. The schedule should not be impacted by load-shedding.
