Waste education tours <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">About</h2></span> <p> We hope to change the way people think about waste disposal and create a culture of environmental responsibility and awareness. By working together with all Capetonians, we aim to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and empower our residents to minimise their waste and stop littering. Educators, learners and their families are important partners in the City's efforts. </p><h2 class="sectHeading"> Book a tour</h2> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info toptip">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Top tip for educators</h4><p> We offer educational tours for learners from grade 4 and up to expose them to the waste stream journey.</p></div></div></span> <p>Complete the booking form in the document download section below and fax or email it to:</p><h4> Solid Waste Management: Public Awareness and Education.</h4><p> <em>Fax</em><br><a><em>021 400 5922</em></a><br><br><em> Email:</em><br><a href=""><em></em></a></p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p>Learners are required to have a parent/guardian complete and sign the consent form in the document download section at the bottom of the page before visiting the facility.</p></div></div></span> <h2 class="sectHeading">Conditions for booking a tour</h2><ul><li>All learners are required to have a parent/guardian complete and submit the consent form before visiting one of our waste management facilities.</li><li>A visit to the Waste Management facility is recommended for learners from Grade 4 and up.</li><li>All school groups/minors must be under adult supervision.</li><li>Groups are limited to 30 individuals per group.
