Yes, and then there, is a group of very, very faithfull people who sorts out the rubbish. What many will not know, is that cans has been recycled for the past many, many years. There is a company that donated a truck to take said cans for recycling on a weekly basis.
Well done to the guys who stand in the blistering sun day in and out to sort out our rubbish. I salute you

I don't think there was any doubt, well in mind anyway, that the rubbish gets sorted at the main dump, but the question asked, was if the recyclable refuse placed into the donated Nampac bins was kept separate from the regular rubbish in the camps as it seems, from several visitors observations that this is not being done and it is simply tossed/mixed in with the general camp refuse and then being sorted afterwards?
So in other words, does it matter if I place my tins/glass/paper etc into those special bins or just throw it into the bin in the bungalow if its going to be sorted out later anyway?

It is a strange thing but recycling here in the UK differs from council area to council area So that one can recycle certain plastics and another cannot. i.e. some can do yoghurt pots ours can't, all paper, but not shredded paper.
So with international visitors maybe there is some confusion and things do get muddled together ? but I understand your point Elsa.

Colour me clueless, but there is a dump INSIDE Kruger?? :shock:

How do they keep the animals away and from becoming habituated?

Hi All. After a number of trips and seeing the recycling bins being placed in most camps, I was very impressed.

Today at Pretoriouskop I watched the cleaner place the rubbish from both sides of the recycling bin, which we had diligently sorted according to the signs, into one big bag.

This leads me to ask the question. Why bother to seperate the rubbish for recycling when it all ends up in the same bag? Has anyone else seen this happen as well?

I agree, it is a wonderful initiative - if it works.

Last year I stuck my head into several bins at camps and picnic sites. Only to find that the division between the two sides was non-existent and all the rubbish just went into one huge pile.

I have heard, however, that the rubbish is sorted once it reaches the dump.

I seem to recall about a year ago there was an issue about an open rubbish dump outside Lower Sabie. Does anyone know if this site has been cleaned up?
