The city of Cape Town has launched an initiative to provide more compost bins for Cape suburbs.

Seven different areas under the Subcouncil 1 will benefit from the new initiative and will assist residents in growing their own food and making better use of their organic waste.

The aim of the new pilot project is to ensure that less organic waste ends up in landfills.

Residents in Sherwood, Pella, Atlantis, Saxonsea, Protea Park and Robinvale are being encouraged to apply for a free home composting container at Saxonsea Hall, between 3pm – 6pm on March 3 and 4.

An estimated 200 free composting containers will be issued each day and applicants will have to fill out a form at the venue on the date mentioned to apply.

Only single residential households will be able to apply for containers and they will be supplied on a first-come-first-serve basis
