Recycling programme continues in-house

George Municipality confirms that the collection and delivery of blue and green bags has continued in-house.  

Blue and green bags are collected on the same day as black bags by our municipal refuse trucks, but not at the same time. A separate trip is made for the collection of the blue bags.

Households or businesses that are actively recycling and require additional green or blue bags or have not received the two blue and two green replacement bags., can either phone in to 044 8022900 with their address to report or collect from the municipality Environmental Services department at 82 Meade Street.

The municipality remains committed to waste reduction and recycling, and we acknowledge that the current system is not without flaws but all attempts are being made to resolve issues as they arise. The areas currently serviced by recycling include all suburbs of George as well as the outer areas of Wilderness, Kleinkrantz, Hoekwil, Victoria Bay and Herolds Bay.
