A “spaza” is the colloquial term for a corner shop in South Africa. Most items bought at these stores are
wrapped in some sort of packaging. The project aims to demonstrate that this packaging has value when
it is recyclable. The project rewards learners with more of these items for good behaviour.
To create excitement, schools compete against one another to collect the most sorted recyclable waste per capita.
the most recyclables
wins R30 000
towards school upgrades.
R15 000 and the school in third place receives R5 000.
To educate staff about the campaign, pre-awareness hampers are given to the teachers at each of the participating schools.
These packs include printed communication and food items packaged in the four recyclable substrates: paper, glass, plastic and cans.
Each learner also receives a starter pack containing recycling bags in
four different colours, plus an information leaflet:
Learners are encouraged to bring their filled recycling bags to a launch day to be weighed.
REWARDED WITH TREATS FROM THE TRASH 4 TREATS SPAZA.
To kick-start the initiative, grades are challenged to bring sorted post-consumer packaging to a special assembly in order to win treats.
This launch event will involve an audiovisual presentation and a visit from our mascot, Trashy, to educate the learners about litter and why recycling is so important.
A magician uses tricks incorporating packaging to engage and excite the learners.
Three recycling bins are placed at each school in the lead-up to the event.
Waste collected gets schools on the scoreboard and counts towards their total.
Each school is paired with a local waste collector, who collects and buys back the recycling at the going rate.
This creates a sustainable and mutually beneficial relationship between the school and the waste entrepreneur.
We host a ceremony at the winning school at the end of the competition to hand over the prize money.
Learners from the winning school also receive another opportunity to get treats from the Trash 4 Treats Spaza.
