City welcomes waste education initiative by CPUT and The Greater Tygerberg Partnership

The CPUT better. bellville. together. Waste Education Week symbolises a crucial step towards a more sustainable future. This is why we continue to emphasise the significance of collaboration and partnerships in our collective mission to reduce waste and divert it from landfills.

 At the heart of any successful sustainability effort lies the power of collaboration. It is through our combined efforts, shared knowledge and unified passion that we can drive meaningful change in waste management practices. The partnerships forged in endeavours like this one not only magnify our impact but also pave the way for innovative solutions that can shape a greener tomorrow for all.


I commend the Greater Tygerberg Partnership and Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) for their unwavering commitment to waste minimisation strategies and their relentless efforts in spearheading sustainable practices. By implementing their Waste Management Programme and launching the three-bin separation system for organics, recyclables and non-recyclables, CPUT sets a shining example for institutions and communities alike.


It is through initiatives like the CPUT Waste Education Week that we not only educate and inspire individuals but also instil a sense of responsibility and stewardship towards our environment. By empowering students, staff and participants with knowledge and actionable steps, CPUT is fostering a culture of sustainability that will ripple far beyond the boundaries of this campus.


It is through partnership, collaboration and a shared vision that we can achieve our goals of waste reduction, landfill diversion and environmental preservation. I urge each one of you to amplify the impact of your actions, embrace collaboration and be catalysts for change in your own spheres of influence.


Together, let us continue to build a world where sustainability is not just a goal but also a way of life.
