TWTC footprint July - 

Every day is Mandela Day!!!

BY Vicky du Toit

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead” – Nelson Mandela.  Tata Madiba is remembered for the significant influence he has had in the lives of many.  This month, TWTC honoured his memory by supporting two community cleanups.  We do believe, however, that every day should be Madiba Day - just as we believe that every day is Earth Day! In partnership with Sun Citrus, TWTC joined the Kirkwood Cleanup on the twentieth of July. 


Four schools participated in the cleanup.  Each school had volunteer learners that joined to clean up their school and surrounding areas.  A total of 508kg of litter was collected from the streets of Kirkwood that morning.  PETCO sponsored bags for the cleanup, Suncitrus sponsored refreshments and TWTC sponsored educational talks and logistics. Shortly thereafter, Belinda Brooker from PETCO visited Port Elizabeth to assist with a cleanup in Zwide.  Although the weather was cold and wet, everyone did their part by pledging their 67 minutes to clean up a dumping area in Vuku Street. 


Vicky and Emmy had the pleasure of visiting the MBSA Annual Schools Expo this month where they addressed learners from numerous different schools about the importance of recycling.  Emmy captured everyone's attention with her 'hip and happening' recycle rap, and Vicky ended the presentation by having everyone pledge to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! Spreading the green gospel would not be possible without our media partners, and therefore we would like to thank Gareth Burley from Kingfisher FM for interviewing us.  We look forward to many more fun sessions in studio with him! At TWTC we understand that investing in our staff is just as important as investing in our clients.  Teambuilding efforts and investment in our staff's personal growth have proven to improve our service and ensures a healthy working environment at our depot.  We are very proud of our purchasing officer, who has started university at NMMU and we look forward to cheering her on!


In conclusion, we are proud to announce our top 3 Recycling Schools for the second term of 2015:


In first place we have Kabega Primary, with a total weight of 11306 kg!!!

In Second place we have BJ Mnyanda Primary with a total weight of 5617.5 kg!!!

In third place we have DF Malherbe High with a total weight of 5018 kg!!!
