Cape Town develops & promotes Waste exchange system

The City’s Waste Exchange Programme (IWEX) is a free online system that enables waste generators and users to exchange waste materials. IWEX facilitates the re-use of waste between interested parties and aims to contribute to the reduction of recyclable waste in Cape Town’s landfills.

Currently IWEX has 413 registered users and 1 484 contacts have been initiated between these users, proving that it is the ideal platform for recyclers, and has great potential for growth. In terms of waste listings, 46 listings have been made for “Waste Wanted” and 65 listings for “Waste Available” for exchange.
