South Africa (General discussion and info)
South Africans aren’t connecting on a local level.
Direct South Africans here for them to meet each other, discuss local issues and solutions and make announcements about local developements and news. We can create topics for smaller regions later. We are still too “scattered” and under-resourced for it to be useful.
Later on a “South Africans: Start Here” (or similar) topic will be good to summarise what beginners need to know to get started ASAP.
You gotta start somewhere, right?
Hello fellow South African,
Our company is based in JHB, We have had a crack at a few of the Precious Plastic machines, We have the single axial shredder, The double axial shredder, The injection moulder and the extrusion machine. If anyone is around. you are more than welcome to pay a visit.
This is a project from @makerstationhq.
I think we should have city-wide meet-ups there.
These trolleys might also work as static collection bins to be parked in certain regular spots for trash donation from the public.
The idea is that businesses can sponsor a trolley in exchange for an advertisement on the trolley. They are also fitted with flashing LED “hazard” lights and GPS trackers.
Hi All thanks for the mention @frederikc
We run a makerspace called the MakerStation HQ in Woodstock CT, 600ish members and 50-100 active accross all diciplines, so our members and the space builds a lot of machines and projects.
SkarrelWa is one of several projects we have in the recycling space.
there are several makerspaces accross SA and Afrika and they are all great resources for expertise and equipment,

The first part of the Version 4 business plan system has been released:
Remember to support Breadtags For Wheelchairs.
If there is not a collection bin in your neighbourhood, set one up and contact them to put it on their map. Most Pathcare branches act as collection points, and funnel the collected tags to the logistics partners, who get the tags to Joburg for recycling.
There are now also chapters in Australia and New Zealand.
