With one of the longest recycled walkways in South Africa, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is joining the rest of the country in focussing on Recycling Day today.
Few residents realise that Port Elizabeth’s spectacular beach walkways were made possible after plastic material equivalent to more than 16-million-300-thousand empty two-litre bottles was recycled.
Municipality spokesperson Kupido Baron says benches made from recycled material have also been installed in parks throughout the municipality.
