GreenCape, in partnership with the City of Cape Town and Invest Cape Town, has published a new case study titled, 'Building collaboration between industry, government and communities to support recycling in informal and low-income settlements'.

It focuses on the GreenUp initiative in Khayelitsha, Cape Town and highlights the potential of collaboration between government, industry and communities to implement recycling in a low-income area, whilst at the same time enabling an improvement in livelihoods in the communities.
This case study has been written for:

  • Officials at national and regional level tasked with enabling the integration of waste pickers into formal waste management systems who may be looking for workable models and success factors.
  • Decision makers in consumer goods value chains, specifically those responsible for extended producer responsibility (EPR) and corporate social responsibility (CSR). 
  • Officials at local government level specifically tasked to enable the integration of waste pickers into waste management systems at a municipal level. (For example, the City of Cape Town has an Informal Sector Integration Task Team). 
  • Community-based organisations and other non-governmental organisations with an interest in improving livelihoods in informal and low-income communities.
