Kool Waste

A couple of years ago I was on the hunt for a safe, easy way to do my recycling. I searched, called, googled and spoke to friends before discovering Barry Visagie and Kool Waste. Woodstock seemed to be an under serviced neighbourhood, for all sorts of obvious socio-political reasons.

The reason why Kool Waste were quite difficult to get hold of was because they don’t have a great on-line presence. Since discovering them though, we have had an amazing relationship. For R60 a month, Barry and his gorgeous guy swing by my house once a week and collect a full black bag of recyclables. All I have to do is to make sure the stuff is all clean and dry. Plastic, paper, tin, and glass is all put together and then Barry and the Kool Waste guys do the sorting.

They sent out a newsletter this week saying that a lot of their customers were in arrears and that they had been losing customers too. I suppose it might seem like an extra expense when people are tightening their belts. I think this is a great pity. So I am putting word out there. Here is how to get hold of Barry. 072 1295787 or

  1. Hi Just to advise that the household collection went up some 22 months ago to R85 per month
    We have to unfortunatly increase it again in January 2015 to R100.00 per month.
