Recycling Pains

Recycling in Zimbabwe is so very different to that in the first world..
No-one divides glass, plastic, paper etc, it all gets put into the same bin on the verge (or sometimes dumped in the nearest bush!!) on garbage day.

Along come dozens of Zimbabwe's 'Forgotten People', the countless destitutes, young, old, male, female, some even with babies on their backs, the remnants of Zimbabwe's desperate economy..

Everything edible, everything of value, is salvaged. Cardboard boxes are prized to make shelter for the homeless, plastic bottles can be surrendered for a pittance, glass too is valuable as it is redeemable.
It is a heartbreaking but all too common sight on bin day in Zimbabwe.

Sweden has just the opposite in the recyclable department!! Every household is tasked with separating its waste and physically taking it to the enormous green recycling bins that festoon every roadway.

Its a daunting task, visiting the atervinningstunna!! Fortunately one can park one's car close by, boxes must be flattened as the aperture to pass the cardboard through is tiny!! Bottles must be disposed of one-by-one, its a horrifying sound, that of breaking glass, and no throwing a whole bag in at a time!! (Even if you need to do it hastily to avoid askance looks from other recyclers, as to the copious amount of wine bottles in our packets!! )

Clear glass in one container, coloured glass in another, tins and lids in another, aluminium in yet another!! A bin for plastic, a bin for paper and a bin for used clothes collection.

It's a dreary and time consuming task and woe betide the folk who put their recyclables in the wrong bin, THEY will track you down and fine you!!

Shirley Cabutt

Dearly loved wife of Gof, mother of Stacey and Adrian, grandmother to her precious brood. Such a fighter, such a remarkable woman, formerly of Turk Mine farming area. Her indomitable spirt will remain with us all for a long time.

So sad to hear of the passing of Irene. Goodbye dearest friend. Treasured
Deepest sympathy to John and Angie.
Maureen & Pat Higgins & family.

13.07.1927 - 23.08.2021

Our dad, grand- dad & great grand-dad passed away peacefully in Perth Australia aged 94 on 23rd August.
You were a man of honour, integrity and faith whose words were few but whose actions were many and who was admired and respected by all who knew you and who we, as your family were proud to call Dad.

Dad's early career from 1948 - 1966 was with the Department of Conservation & Extension where he was instrumental in the building of dams, roads and other infrastructure and providing advice and professional assistance to many of the newly established commercial farms in Matabeleland and the Midlands. After a twenty five year career with Fedmis Fertilizers in South Africa he and our mother Lyn( nee Metelerkamp) retired in Perth.

RIP Dad.
With love from Allen, Graham, Nabeel, Shaynne and families.

Joe Deeney has passed away.

A great man with an equally great heart..
RIP Joseph, you'll never be forgotten..


Devastating to hear of the loss of another Lowveld icon. Rest in peace Digby, now that you are united once more and flying high with Jess.

Heartfelt condolences to Rory, Tracey and Clinton.

Rhonda Elsmore-Carey

Allan and Sue pass their condolences to Ron Elsmore-Carey and his family on the passing of Rhonda. May she rest in peace.

Christopher Frank Scales

Our thoughts and prayers are with Julian and all the Scales family. He was such a kind and generous person and will be missed by many. With love to you all in this time of sorrow.

8) Bulawayo News


Knowing that the lockdown has given folk time to sort out cupboards, garages etc - please have a look at our Charity Shop List and our Kennel Wish List - you may be surprised how many unwanted items to you - are just what we are needing here at the kennels!

All the volunteers who work at the charity shop deserve a big pat on the back, but they DO need items to sell! - apparently the shelves are rather bare, so they would appreciate any unwanted saleable household goods, such as ornaments, glassware, crockery, pictures, clothing, garden tools, small items of furniture, jam jars for the jam makers! - in fact anything they can sell to make money to help the kennels.
They have Ecocash for convenience - items can be dropped off at the Charity shop - 127e,Robert Mugabe Way.

Kennel and Clinic Wish List
If folk could donate any one of these items, that would be fantastic!
Old blankets and towels, Newspapers,Tinned + Dried Pet Food for Dogs and Cats, Fly Smear, Old Crepe Bandages, Latex Gloves, Face Masks, Paper Towels, Disinfectant Wipes, Antiseptic Wound Spray, Dressings, Toys for Cats, Cat Carriers, Dog Boxes or Cages, Fly Spray, Bolt Cutters, Brooms both Soft and Stiff, Disposable Aprons, off cuts of Foam Rubber to cover donkey harnesses..

all can be dropped off at the Kennels, cnr of Magazine and Khami Road - if you can donate just one of these items..

it will improve the welfare of at least one animal - Thank You!
