BluSwirl Recycling and Waste Mangement Centurion Cleanups & Community Projects

Riverview Park Cleanup

A large group of the community and other businesses joined us at the Hennops River clean-up and brought unwanted electronics to be recycled at our e-Recycling point. All other recyclables was also accepted and we managed to get more of the community involved on the 19th of January 2019, a big thanks to everyone who was involved and who took time to be a part of the change. Safe and secure parking was also provided.

Lewende Woord Riverside Cleanup

Educational riverside cleanup at the large natural area of Lewende Woord Centurion. This two-day Educational Cleanup was held on the 13th and 14th April and the idea was to focus on schools and community groups, with presentations by a range of environmental groups, NGOs and service providers. With the aim to empower people through education, cultivate a love of nature in young people and last but not least to promote a green lifestyle through recycling and other green initiatives.

Hennops River Hike

From the 9th to the 13th of June 2019, a group of five people decided to get together to start a journey that started in Thembisa. With the aim at raising awareness and funds to purchase a machine that will turn most of the waste in the Hennops River into re-usable fuels and material. This was the first leg and we encountered some shocking sights and our eyes were opened. We had never imagined that the Hennops River was so badly polluted and the real level of damage can be easily seen from the surrounding bush and man-made structures. Here are photos of what we saw.
