USE-IT Glass Recycling Program Business Plan

Urban Earth provided a technical/industry advisory role to GMA Innovations on a project to investigate and assess an alternative system to address the local beneficiation of glass bottles and flat glass in KwaZulu-Natal for USE-IT in 2015. USE-IT is a Section 21 company in Durban that focuses on facilitating the reduction of waste to landfill and the creation of jobs in the waste sector. 

The project involved conducting face-to-face interviews with different stakeholders in KwaZulu-Natal to determine the status quo and possible opportunities for glass reuse and recycling in KwaZulu-Natal.

The result of the research were two reports, a market assessment, and a business plan which highlighted six possible sub-programmes for the beneficiation of glass in KwaZulu-Natal.
