Reclaimers Organisation

Who We Are

ARO is a membership-based democratic organisation of reclaimers working with reclaimers in residential areas and landfills. We sort, collect and sell recyclable materials. Currently we have a membership of over 5500 reclaimers in and around the City of Johannesburg. We represent and defend the interests of reclaimers, and ensure that they are able to partake fully as members of society in the recycling economy and in looking after the environment.
