Welcome to our Resources page.

We appreciate your time taken to explore our website. Whether you are a City of Joburg citizen, business owner, potential or current customer, search professional/potential candidate looking to make a career change, or a researcher/student seeking waste minimisation information, Pikitup – the City of Joburg’s Waste Management Entity has something to offer.

Environmental Education

Pikitup’s role is more than providing a waste collection and disposal service; we believe that Pikitup must also focus on helping to improve the environment through environmental education for the benefit of everyone.
To learn about recycling and other environmental issues visit:

The National Recycling Forum
City of Johannesburg: Department of Environment and Infrastructure services
The Department of Environmental Affairs


Eco-Rangers is an educational campaign aimed at engaging young minds, and serving as a platform to raise awareness and educating them about environmental issues the City faces, as well as the impact these will have on the future. The campaign involves four fun and interactive educational characters – Litter-X, Recyclo, Lynx and Sky – who engage with young learners through positive youth development practices and education.
The project visits schools across the City and hopes to reach 150 000 learners.
