UCT does not currently provide facilities for people who live off campus and want to recycle. However, recycling is becoming very popular and much easier around Cape Town. There are various companies that will pick up your recyclables for a fee (dependent on the volume) and there are many public and private recycling depots, often at schools, which will take your waste. The Cape Town Green Map website is a wealth of information in this regard – visit the website here.
