Food waste

There is a shocking amount of food waste that is simply discarded when it can actually be reused. In line with the Western Cape Government’s move to a circular economy, they aim to eliminate organic material from going to landfill by 50% in 2022 and 100% by 2027.

Clearer Conscience is unique in Cape Town in offering a residential and business service that collects all food waste (except for flesh, cooked or uncooked, and bones) as well as paper tissues & towels.

Simply have your compostable bags ready for us to collect on your regular recycling collection day.


The package we suggest for residential homes:

12-litre bin for food waste

  • 1x 12-litre counter top bin
  • 20x 12-litre compostable bags
  • Weekly collections
Clearer Conscience will take your food waste to the Camp Joy facility to create compost

The facility we will be dropping off to is Camp Joy in Strandfontein, a centre helping rehabilitate people from drug use.

They run a garden that produces magnificent vegetables (see above) to feed the residents there and at the First Community Resource Centre in Hanover Park. They will be composting the food waste.

We also provide food waste to farmers to assist with their composting and livestock needs.

We offer 50 & 100-litre drums that are ideal for food waste collections from schools, hotels, restaurants and businesses.
