Bagging a bin

Noel Johannessen explains compost making to people waiting to collect their bins.

Hundreds of residents joined the green movement recently when they became proud owners of compost bins. The City of Cape Town has been giving the bins to residents in a bid to reduce the amount of waster that is making its way to landfills, which are filling up fast. Waiting patiently in Mowbray Town Hall they filled in a form, were registered on computer and then carried away their free compost bins. Five hundred bins were handed to residents from Wednesday to February at Mowbray and Woodstock town halls.
