Our National Footprint

As part of the Recycling business, Remade Recycling and Mpact Recycling have a national footprint of 15 branches.

The business collects and receives over 500,000 tonnes of waste annually from many sources including buyback centres, dealers, large and small formal and informal collectors, waste management programmes, and education and community programmes which is delivered directly to our branches or to our central distribution centre which delivers to the Mpact paper mill.

The branches have been strategically positioned for efficient implementation of all services. Not only is there back-up support, but all branches are fully equipped with the latest baling equipment and our sites are permitted according to the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008 (No. 59 of 2008).

We only purchase clean, sorted recyclable material from both large and small scale suppliers. The grades of waste handled by Remade Recycling include most grades of paper, plastic, food and beverage cans, food and beverage glass, and eWaste.

Anyone can bring any amount of sorted recyclable material either to one of our branches or to one of our buy-back centres.

For more information about our branches and processes or prices please contact the Remade Recycling Head Office or contact one of our branches.

Why Recycle?

It was estimated by the Department of Environmental Affairs in 2012 that 65% of the waste that we produce in South Africa is recyclable, which is good news. However, out of the 90% of waste that’s landfilled, only 10% is actually diverted and recycled. Then in 2017, the Department of Environmental Affairs’ South African Waste Information Centre came back to us and reported that over 19.2 million tonnes of general waste and one million tonnes of hazardous waste went to the country’s 825 landfill sites. Shockingly, the landfill sites in Johannesburg, Tshwane, and Cape Town are reporting less than 10 years of useful life left in them, and with little or no opportunities for building new ones, it’s safe to say that we’re running out of space.

The pressure is on for recycling in Africa, and recycling in South Africa in particular to become a priority. As companies and communities, we have to find innovative ways of sustainably diverting waste from landfill. And as individuals, we need to let go of the old idea that our few plastic bags don’t contribute to existing landfill mountains. When there are 7 billion of us out there, what we do on our own does matter collectively. Every piece of waste makes a difference. Every piece of waste could be diverted from landfill and recovered for reprocessing or repurposing. We must make positive changes in our own waste management habits – because big changes start with small actions right at home.

If this rings true for you, then perhaps the first place to start is by asking yourself the question, ‘What can we recycle?’ And thankfully, we have the answer for you, as well as a recyclable materials list, so please get in touch and our experts will help answer all of your questions.

Our aim is to help companies navigate the future of waste through our customisable and cost effective waste management services and we believe that by working together, we can revolutionise the future of waste and create a better future for all.

At Remade Recycling, we are dedicated to providing ethical waste management solutions. Unlike many other recycling companies, we aren’t just focused on collecting your recycling waste. We are upfront and honest about our commitment to recyclable material recovery and alternative to landfill services so that we can help people, communities, and companies navigate the future of waste.

Since 1987, we have been committed to working with businesses who want to successfully manage their waste streams, regardless of volume and type. Today, we are just as committed to delivering sustainable solutions that suit each individual business site and waste stream – and with staff in over 150 sites in Gauteng, we ensure that our waste solutions are cost effective and fit in with your operational processes.

When you partner with Remade Recycling, your needs will be accurately assessed so that we can draw only the appropriate resources from our strategically positioned baling operations and extensive vehicle fleet and equipment stock. In this way, we can ensure operationally practical resource allocation. Added to this, we strive to make economic and ecological sense through closed loop sustainability supply and manufacturing processes, which is especially vital for companies who support environmental sustainability and place high importance on conserving resources and optimally managing their waste. For those companies, a closed loop approach is the goal and as an accredited member of the Institute of Waste Management and a key part of Mpact Group, we know what it takes to deliver this.

Importantly, through our close, reliable connection with Mpact Group, the largest paper recycler in South Africa, we can supply recyclable materials as a raw-material input source to its paper mills. This means that companies partnering with us are guaranteed an offtake for their paper products, and particularly their cardboard, liquid packaging and white paper, which is fed directly into Mpact Group manufacturing processes.

Ultimately, we believe that by working together, we can revolutionise the future of waste and create a better world for all.
