Ferndale on Republic, previously known as Brightwater Commons in Randburg, is extremely proud to announce that the centre will once again be assisting the general public with recycling their household items.

“We encourage our shoppers and the Randburg community to recycle as this contributes to a cleaner neighbourhood and planet and it’s with this in mind, that we would like to educate the public on what recycling service Ferndale On Republic offer,” says centre manager, Francois du Buisson.

The area where patrons are encouraged to deposit their already sorted recycled items, is currently situated behind Home Stuff, close to the Cross Street entrance.  This will be the temporary recycling area until such time as the centre’s refurbishment concludes mid-2019, thereafter the recycling area will be relocated closer to Republic Road.
Important Ferndale On Republic Recycling Guidelines:

  • No mixed recyclables will be accepted nor other contaminated waste or recyclables. Recyclables must be clean and dry;
  • Recyclables must be sorted at home i.e. glass, plastic, paper and tins in bags.  Bags will be inspected prior to accepting it;
  • Patrons may only drop off recyclables at Ferndale On Republic between 8 AM and 4 PM, Monday to Sunday. Unfortunately, NO recycled items will be accepted after hours;
  • No garden waste will be accepted;
  • No wet waste will be accepted;
  • No furniture will be accepted;
  • No toxic, poisons and oil or any harmful chemicals will be accepted;
  • Please ensure to make use of the DESCO bin for all electronic waste;
  • No polystyrene will be accepted.

It is extremely important to adhere to these guidelines in order to keep the recycling initiative viable for patrons and the centre. “We strive to continuously offer this service to Ferndale On Republic shoppers and the greater Randburg community and thus everyone’s cooperation is imperative,” says du Buisson.

“We are not a substitute for the city waste removal and all NON-recyclables must still be placed in the bins for City of Jo’burg to collect,” he concludes.
