Waste Exchange

The City of Cape Town has launched an Integrated Waste Exchange (IWEX) where anyone can register and list any waste items they’d like to exchange in the IWEX catalogue.

“IWEX (Integrated Waste Exchange) is a free online system that enables waste generators and users to exchange waste materials. Operating on the principle that ‘one person’s garbage is another person’s gold,’ IWEX facilitates the re-use of waste, thereby conserving energy, minimising resource use and reducing the pressure on Cape Town’s landfill space. The service is freely available to anyone who generates or uses waste, including companies, individuals, institutions, schools, NGOs and community groups.”
