Walkers Recycling is a family-run business started by Eddie Walker at his Mitchells Plain home. He started from a residential base and began collecting high-value recyclable material from the CBD in 2005. The business has since evolved into a small enterprise (trading as C and E Logistics CC) that operates with full recognition from the City of Cape Town from an industrial park (click here for the waste service provider accreditation). The business now employs 10 people, all historically disadvantaged in the South African context.
The business has been collecting waste for a decade but initiated the idea of securing carbon credits in 2013. It is the intention to account for and secure carbon revenue from 2013. The project was audited for the first time in June 2015.
Audited (2015) GHG Reductions:
Walker's Recycling is a South African business (Pty, Ltd) based in Coleman Park, in the Elsie’s River industrial area. Walker's Recycling operates a vehicle fleet that collects waste from homes, restaurants and nightclubs for sorting by team of employees. Walker's Recycling plays the role of Project Developer in this project and is responsible for managing the waste collection and sorting and remunerating waste-pickers that are active at its site in Coleman Park. It has been agreed that proceeds from any carbon revenue will be used to increase waste collection through the employment of new waste collectors and an increase in the scale of Walker's Recycling’s operations.
