Description

Whole Earth Recycling was founded in March 2007 at Cluny Farm. Sorting was done by 4 sorters until 2008. Whole Earth then moved to Décor Park in 2009 and finally to Strijdom Park where they started their community based project in 2011. Carmen Rayner recently purchased Whole Earth and the company hopes to grow from strength to strength. Whole Earth provides a simple, reliable and hassle-free way to recycle and by supporting Whole Earth you are supporting a wonderful community based project; a group of sorters calling themselves Hawk Flight. The recyclable material that Whole Earth collects is sorted by the Hawk Flight team, currently a group of 24 sorters, and they generate an income for themselves by sorting and selling the material to a local buy-back centre. This is their only source of income and without it they would be rummaging through Municipal refuse bins (in most cases mixed with old food etc.) in order to gather recyclables to sell. By recycling you are contributing towards job creation (a total of around 40 people), directly through the Whole Earth admin team, the drivers, and the truck assistants (loaders) and indirectly through the community based project, while reducing the impact that we are having on our environment. Every little bit helps.

Mission

To ensure that everyone work towards becoming environmentally friendly and reducing the amount of waste produced within their environment which will then have a positive impact on the environment. We aim to provide a simple, reliable and hassle free service.
