    – Tongaat Hulett has pledged to donate $32 870 worth of special bins for the disposal of used bulbs to Chiredzi Town Council.
    Electrical bulbs are said to possess a hazardous substance called mercury hence the need to carefully dispose them.
    Charles Muchatukwa the town secretary told a full council meeting recently that Tongaat had approached council and pledged to donate bins as well as special disposal latrines which are aimed at capturing used electrical bulbs.
    He also said the cost of the project is $32 870 and Tongaat will fund the programme including awareness campaigns.
    "We have a letter from Tongaat Hulett in which as council management we want council to approve the donation which the company is offering us. What it means is that residents will no longer be disposing electrical bulbs in usual bins at home but in those bins," said Muchatukwa.
    Council accepted the donation and thanked Tongaat Hulett for the good gesture.
