Compost Bins offered free to Cape Town Homeowners

The City of Cape Town had a resoundingly positive response from Cape Town citizens regarding the Home Composting initiative, and Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg posted the following on the Council website on the 7th April 2016:
“Dear Homeowner

We are blown away by the enthusiasm with which the City’s home composting programme has been met.

As previously indicated, there are units available to the first 5 000 applicants only. We have now reached this target, so for now we unfortunately cannot accept any further applications for free home composting containers.

But please do not lose heart; there will be an additional 5 000 units available in the next phase of roll-out soon after July 2016. Please keep an eye on the City’s media releases and website for more information, which will advise of when the next phase begins and when applications can be submitted.
kind regards

Cllr Ernest Sonnenberg”

This sets the benchmark for other Municipalities in South Africa, and we hope others will follow in making a difference in home composting across the country.

If you cannot wait to get composting, and wish to purchase a 150 litre compost bin at a recommended retail price of R855, please contact Richard Marks on 0217900058.

Joraform Africa, in partnership with African Sanitation has collaborated with the department of Rural Development to introduce an alternative Sanitation solution lead by the community itself.
Utilizing African Sanitation’s waterless sanitation technology, Joraform Africa has been able to successfully close the loop by utilising sanitation waste for agriculture creating sustainable communities. The Joraform’s technology, in over 35 installations has been deployed in 6 Provinces across rural South Africa.
Decomposed faecal matter is collected on a monthly basis from households, and processed through Joraform’s unique composting technology for a further 4 weeks. The 4 week aerobic process/cycle produces a safe to handle mature, inoffensive compost-like material, which in turn has a few applications such as composting for farming. The end result is pathogen free, viable compost that can be utilised for agriculture. Communities are now able to grow their own crops, aiding in teaching residents of the various communities self-empowerment and the principle of Ubuntu.
Besides giving people dignity, the project further serves to assist local and National Government achieve the targets of the National Development Plan by creating jobs in rural areas that normally would prove difficult by the mainstream economy of South Africa, by employing janitors and operators for the composting machines from the very community Joraform services.
