Integrated Waste Exchange (IWEX)<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About</h2></span> <div>IWEX was the City’s free online waste exchange platform that enabled waste generators and users to exchange unwanted by-products or waste materials.</div><div> <br> </div><div>It unlocked new markets for unwanted materials, helped to facilitate the re-use of waste, and helped to conserve energy, minimise resource use and reduce the pressure on Cape Town's landfill space. The service was available to anyone who generates or uses waste, including companies, individuals, institutions, schools, NGOs, and community groups.<br></div><div><br></div> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Exchange waste with WISP<br></h2><div>IWEX has been retired, however we remain committed to waste exchange, by funding the <a href="https://www.greencape.co.za/content/sector/wisp">Western Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme (WISP)</a>, which is a free service that connects companies with unused resources, waste materials and expertise. Businesses are encouraged to join the WISP network to realise the return on investment it offers.</div><div> <br> </div><div> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZtluxd3xPU">Watch an overview of WISP</a> and visit <a href="https://www.greencape.co.za/content/sector/wisp">GreenCape</a> for more information.<br></div><div> <br> </div><h2 class="sectHeading">Contact us</h2><p>Contact our <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/Departments/Solid%20Waste%20Management%20Department">Solid Waste Management Department</a> for information on waste management and recycling services in Cape Town.<br></p>GP0|#789ad87b-7500-42da-bc4a-db5d8916f088;L0|#0789ad87b-7500-42da-bc4a-db5d8916f088|Integrated Waste Exchange (IWEX);GTSet|#ef3a64a2-d764-44bc-9d69-3a63d3fadea1;GPP|#d4956a09-99ad-4d97-9921-0cf7e06b961c;GPP|#a3964d56-b74d-4d64-95c1-ff381a88a277;GPP|#245ec7aa-a528-4cd3-bcac-597c292db711;GP0|#e609669d-dcc3-458f-b39b-5ee1efd7d15d;L0|#0e609669d-dcc3-458f-b39b-5ee1efd7d15d|Integrated Waste Exchange (IWEX);GPP|#298f5623-1943-427a-bf3d-e9ccff072bec;GPP|#4a553a67-2cba-4911-9745-a724e38b645a;GPP|#af370586-9ba3-404a-9d6e-02066ca42752;GP0|#75e13811-0b2c-4999-84c0-53ca5e855706;L0|#075e13811-0b2c-4999-84c0-53ca5e855706|Integrated Waste Exchange (IWEX);GPP|#ae2787f7-3d59-4363-896c-e08d35e8787b;GPP|#99fac000-f3ac-4774-9ffd-e5e59a130e21;GPP|#e88ff549-973f-4e3c-a46c-cfbe61bd6a240
