Cape Town’s waste entrepreneurs helping to create a green environment

In less than just seven months Joseph Kamoto has almost single-handedly sorted nearly 50‚000 kilograms of waste for recycling that would otherwise have ended up in landfills.

He is part of GezaKapa (Clean Cape)‚ a Cape Town-based social enterprise aimed at creating a green environment‚ that was started by four young entrepreneurs from the city in December.

They started the initiative to encourage recycling in parts of the city where the council did not provide recycling opportunities‚ and in their short existence are already taking in up to 100 drop-offs a day from residents at their single depot at the Gardens Bowling Club in the City Bowl.
