Every Friday, we will have an #AverdaSpotlight post that focuses on exciting developments in various areas of our operations. Our first #AverdaSpotlight demonstrates how our #vision of a #cleaner world leads to better #lives is at the core of our #business.
Earlier this week, our vigilant SA team in #KZN spotted litter that had been displaced by recent #flooding in the province. Here at #Averda, we believe that it is essential to lend a hand in such situations. Ours teams returned to the site three times to ensure that the #waste was cleared. Items cleared from the river ranged from various types of plastic bottles, glass beer bottles, some unpleasant waste items and loads of #polystyrene. In total, our team removed 548 kilograms of waste from the river and managed to recycle 456 kilograms (83%) with only 92 kilograms going to #landfill.
