Why choose Averda for waste sorting services

  • Material recovery facilities (MRFs)

    Averda is one of the few waste companies in South Africa to have its own MRFs, where trained staff pick general waste from recyclable material to divert waste from landfill.

  • Recycling rebates

    We share the profit we make from sales of reusable materials with our customers, allowing you to save money on the disposal of your waste. We’re able to do this through unique partnerships with key converters and end-users of recyclables.

  • Sorting at source

    We can help you with the necessary training and equipment/tools needed to ensure correct sorting of your recycling from your general waste, at home, or in the workplace.

  • Transport logistics

    We have a large fleet of our own specialised waste collection vehicles. At times we work with recycling partners to take advantage of their logistics networks too. This allows us to ensure your recycling is collected at a time convenient to you and reduces unnecessary journeys and associated carbon emissions.

How does it work?

Understanding your waste sorting requirements

We talk to you to understand the volume of waste sorting you require at your premises and determine a solution that best fits your needs.

We equip you

We provide you with the correct equipment and expert staff to sort your waste on-site. If you prefer, we will provide staff training for internal waste sorting.

Collecting your sorted waste

We collect your sorted waste and transport it to one of our end-user partners for recycling. In cases of large volume recycling waste, in order to optimise the value-chain, the end-user will collect the sorted waste directly.

Rebate rands saving you money

Once the end-user is in possession of the sorted recyclable materials, they pay us a rebate which we share with you.

Waste sorting made simple

We provide you with the right equipment and our trained, passionate staff will assist you with correctly sorting your waste at your business or residential premises.

In addition, we positively pick all waste that arrives at our MRFs to ensure we divert as much of it from landfill, reducing negative environmental impact.
