The Wildlands Conservation Trust (WCT) assists local communities and local governments in realising the virtuous cycles between human and ecological well-‐being. One of the ways in which they do this is by enabling the establishment of local recycling operations, focused around community based “waste-‐preneurs”, schools and local businesses in Gauteng and KwaZulu-‐Natal. These Waste-‐ preneurs, Schools and Businesses collect recycling on behalf of the Trust who then contracts Wildlands Green-‐preneurs (Pty) Ltd, a social enterprise established by the Trust, to collect, process and trade the recycling.
The project involves the establishment of over 100 collection depots (each individually named in waste collection records) since 2010 for household and commercial waste. Waste is collected at these depots before being transported directly to market or to centralised recycling processing areas , where it is manually sorted before being sold into the recycling market.
Project commencement date: 1 Jaunrary, 2010
Project period: 10 years
Greenhouse gas reduction schedule:
Year Tonnes CO2e
Estimates of carbon savings are based on the principles contained in the approved CDM-‐Executive Board methodology for recovery and recycling of materials from solid waste: AMS-‐3-‐AJ, including an informal waste sector, a recycling facility and a processing and manufacturing facility.
The quantum of GHG avoided through the specific recycling method is estimated by applying DEFRA conversion factors. Recycling can avoid GHG emissions in two ways. Recycling material often requires less energy than manufacturing an equivalent amount of virgin material, and hence re-‐ duces greenhouse gas emissions. For example, production of plastic from crude oil requires extrac-‐ tion, long-‐distance transport, and extensive chemical processing, while recycling only involves sort-‐ ing, often less transport, and remelting. In addition to these savings, the decomposition of paper and cardboard in landfill emits methane, a more powerful greenhouse gas than carbondioxide, and so recycling these materials also reduces landfill emissions.
Wildlands Trust Project Idea Note:
Wildlands Trust audit:
The first Wildlands Conservation Trust audit on behalf of Credible Carbon was done by KPMG for the period 2012 to 2014. This audit showed that the Wildlands Conservation Trust project had delivered 10 457 tonnes CO2.
