Recycling not a total waste

BRYNLEY VAN AARDT & LIAN VAN WYK The recycling system at Stellenbosch University (SU) is a complex animal, and many students don’t know where their cast-away coffee cups, food containers and plastic bottles end up. There are, however, statistics to answer these questions. About 40%, or 41 496kg, of the total waste that passed through the SU main campus during Feb ruary 2019 was “recovered”. This is from a total amount of 103 093kg of waste produced by the campus. This statistic takes on quite a serious air if it is considered that only 16% of that total amount...

Toyota borg Woordfees; Steve bly weg

S.Z. MINNAAR WOORDFEES is van nou af tougherer. Nadat Toyata SA mede-naamborgregte vir Stellenbosch se “jool vir oumense” bekom het, staan die Woordfees nou amptelik as die Toyota US Woordfees bekend. Toyata is een van die maatskappye wat verlede maand in die nuus was nadat hulle as borg van Afrikaans is Groot (AIG) onttrek het. Die rits ontrekkings volg op ’n twiet uit 2014 van Steve Hofmeyr, wat by AIG gaan optree, wat hewige reaksie op sosiale media ontlok het. “Dit het ’n verdelende krag geword en ons bly polities neutraal,” sê Lettie Labauschagne, hoofbestuurder van bemarkingskommunikasie by Toyota...

Taking more than just a percentage

BOOK SHOP BARGAIN HUNTING Patrick Moehrke browsing Pimp My Book. Pimp My Book in Die Neelsie has recently come under fire from Stellenbosch University (SU) students who are unhappy about how the second-hand bookseller deals with their money.
