Century City, which already boasts a number of green initiatives including the use of recycled water to irrigate all common areas as well as commercial and residential developments, is in the process of rolling out an integrated waste management system.

Key components include the promotion of waste minimization and the introduction of a recycling collection programme.

A pilot project, which was launched in May at Central Park, is proving very successful.

In the first month 12% of all dry and wet waste generated by the Clubhouse and the office blocks situated around Central Park, including the CCPOA offices, was recycled with 88% going to landfill.

By July this had improved significantly with 43% of all waste being recycled and by August this had risen to over 50%.

Century City environmental officer, Alan Liebenberg says they are aiming to recycle 70% of all waste generated in the precinct within the next few months.

He says it was envisaged that this project will be extended to include all other commercial as well as residential developments at Century City in due course.

A drop-and-go recycling depot is also in the planning stages at Canal Walk and it is hoped that this will be launched within the next few months.
