Craig Mitchell, Manager Solid Waste Planning made a presentation confirming that the OM have started recycling. The clear plastic bags are picked up by the trucks and separated at Kleinmond from the black bags. The clear bags then go to Hermanus where any large cardboard is separated first and the rest goes onto a conveyer and then a "picker" at each station picks out the things she is assigned to retrieve and drops them down a shute into bags which are then compressed. They prefer it if the tops of plastic bottles and glass bottles are separated from the bottle. There are still a few private recycling companies operating that collect from supermarkets etc.
