Hicklin, Ms MB to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure
(1)Whether, with reference to the overflowing landfill sites across the Republic, and in light of the response by municipalities countrywide of introducing recycling efforts that have led to the reduction of the load on the landfill sites by millions of tonnes of recyclable goods every month, there are any active recycling initiatives in the parliamentary villages in Cape Town; if not, what are the reasons that there is none; if so, who is responsible for communicating the details of the recycling programme to residents (2) what measures has her department put in place to encourage recycling programmes throughout client departments that make use of buildings falling under the custody of her department?;

2. As per above
