More than 39 000 kg of waste was collected by the
Plastics|SA Clean-Up Crews that cleaned up the routes used by the
athletes during the recent Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, widely known
as "The World’s Most Beautiful Race".
According to Douw Steyn, Director: Sustainability at
Plastics|SA, the majority of the waste collected during this annual event
is made up of plastic, which has a high recycling value.
