About GezajOZI
GezaJozi is a social enterprise that manufacturers and equips waste pickers with The GezaJozi e-Trike.
  • The mission is to transform the informal recycling industry in South Africa.
  • Our goals are to facilitate the vertical integration of waste pickers into the formal recycling industry, promote household separation-at-source, and provide a platform for sustainable investment in the green economy.

GezaJozi - The Transformation of The Informal Recycling Industry
The GezaJozi e-Trike
The GezaJozi e-Trike is a pedal-powered, electrically-assisted, cargo tricycle. It can transport over 120kg of waste for a range of 40km.
  • The e-Trike is safer and more efficient than the current trolleys utilised by waste pickers throughout South Africa.
  • GezaJozi has recently launched a local manufacturing facility in the heart of Johannesburg. This has resulted in a 100% locally assembled and over 50% locally manufactured product.
  • In partnership with Ellies Renewable Energy, GezaJozi is making the transition towards manufacturing fully solar powered electric tricycle fleets.
  • The e-Trike is fitted with motorcycle-style disk brakes, indicators, mirrors, an LED headlight and an interesting sounding hooter.
  • The e-Trike also serves as a unique marketing canvas and an investment platform for socially conscious organisations.

The GezaJozi Reclaimers
GezaJozi’s Reclaimers keep 100% of the waste revenue and utilise the e-Trikes free of charge.
  • Apart from GezaJozi’s external impact on the lives of waste pickers, a huge emphasis is placed upon their personal development.
  • GezaJozi offers waste pickers formal training in life skills, team building and road safety.

How Can You Help?
We encourage all Businesses, Schools, Estates, Apartments and Households to separate their waste at source for all waste pickers.
This improves the quantity and quality of waste that can be acquired and streamlines the process of collection. GezaJozi will collect any recyclable waste, free of charge, from any entity that separates their waste within our areas of operation (Rosebank, Parktown North, Craighall & Craighall Park, Dunkheld & Dunkheld West, Sandhurst, Inanda, Illovo, Athol, Melrose Estate, Emmarentia and Emmarentia Ext, Greenside Ext, Parkview, Westcliff, Saxonwald, Forest Town, Linden, Parkhurst, Blairgowrie, JHB CBD, Newtown, Emmarentia and Emmarentia Ext, Greenside Ext, Parkview, Westcliff, Saxonwald, Forest Town, Linden, Parkhurst, Blairgowrie and surrounding areas).
