WID Recycling

New recycling initiative for Wynberg

In partnership with the Wynberg Community Action Network (Wynberg CAN), Wynberg Improvement District has recently started an initiative with our cleaning teams already on the street, to sort and separate all recyclables as we clean the streets and drains.

The programme, piloted in June 2022, has been highly successful. Ongoing, we are working together with the Wynberg CAN to select teams of 2 people for programmes of 4 to 6 weeks, each consisting of 4 hours of WID directed work per day with an additional component of an individual development programme (IDP) run by the Wynberg CAN. The aim of this is to develop an IDP with each team member to assist them in their personal growth toward a self-sustaining lifestyle.

These workers are now responsible for servicing the Green Public Litter Bins and separating recyclable materials to further reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.

The recycling team members from can be easily recognised by their branded PPE and bibs, setting them apart from other bin pickers.

Report Illegal Dumping

Tackling illegal dumping remains one of the biggest challenges of our City Improvement Districts and one you can assist in by reporting an incident directly to us on our CID WhatsApp group monitored 24/7.

This includes not only rubbish, but also rubble. The practice costs Cape Town taxpayers millions of rands in maintenance on top of usual taxes.

The City is also clamping down on illegal dumping and has launched a reward system for reporting tip-offs about illegal dumping activity to their 24-hour toll-free number (0800 110077). Those convicted of illegal dumping could be fined up to R5 000, have their vehicle impounded, or face a two-year prison sentence. In addition, for every report that leads to a fine and conviction, the City is offering a reward from R1 000 up to R5 000, depending on the offence.

Proposed permanent road closures and bus stop locations in Wynberg

Some roads in Wynberg are proposed for full or partial closure to vehicular traffic to accommodate the Wynberg road couplet scheme previously approved by Council.

The road couplet will use Brodie and Main Roads to create a set of parallel one-way streets that will double the road capacity for general traffic, cater for future MyCiTi services and help revitalise the Wynberg central business district.

The approved concept design of trunk routes for Phase 2A of MyCiTi’s bus service will enable safe, quality, rapid and direct public transport linking Wynberg with Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha and Claremont.

As part of the detail design, several roads are now proposed for full or partial closure in order to accommodate the road couplet.
