George Municipality collection of blue and green bags and procedure with new service provider

The George Municipality has appointed a new interim service provider, HENQUE WASTE for the collection of blue and green bags.

Residents are requested to be patient to allow for a smooth takeover for the new service provider and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused during this takeover period. The blue and green bag collection service will continue as scheduled and we thank all residents who participate in the blue bag(recycling), and green bag (green waste) project.

Blue, Green and Black Bags
The supplier will supply 2 blue or clear bags for the purposes of recycling to each household. Wherever the participation of recycling is bigger, the service provider will supply more bags.
The supplier will supply each household with 4 green bags weekly.
BLUE bags are for non-soiled recyclable materials, including plastic, paper, cardboard, glass etc.
GREEN bags are for green waste, including organic kitchen waste such as fruit and vegetable peels, as well as garden waste, including grass cuttings, leaves etc. No soil is allowed in green bags.
BLACK bags are for ‘wet’ waste, and items that cannot be recycled.

Garden Services
Garden services contracted in by the owner of a property, must remove garden refuse themselves to the landfill site.

Collection day
Residents must please only put blue/ green and black bags out, on their collection day.

For any complaints or queries regarding black bags ONLY please phone Jody Stuurman at Community Services, George Municipality on 044 802 2900.
