So you've decided to "go green." You've replaced your regular light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs and purchased recycling bins. You've even organised that pile in the garage. You know the one – old plastic bags with holes in them, used cans of oil, even an old car battery.
You're feeling pretty proud of yourself, until you realise, "Hey. How do I get rid of all this stuff?" And no, you can't just put it out with the trash.
That's where My Waste comes in. Log onto the My Waste site, type in your address, select your material you’d like to recycle and click search…. They then provides a list of local recycling centres, along with guidelines, phone numbers and maps provided by Google.
Although My Waste’s primary function is to provide South Africans with the easiest way to recycle everything from a can to a computer, they also post original content and articles relevant to recycling. Environmental experts offer advice and tips for living green on their facebook page regularly.
