The Guardian program, as a read.

The rollout of a franchise-able, modular and sustainable cost-effective subscription-driven program which, at no cost to the municipality or non-participant, applies the Waste Management Act, and related laws on the local level, resulting in savings to municipalities and stimulation of the local economy through the following actions/results: 

  •  Removes property and compostable materials from the residential, corporate, industrial and agricultural waste stream for local social, financial and environmental crime-fighting purposes, thereby stimulating the local holistic economy and cleaning up the town and suburbs;
  • Provides through urban farmer table gardens and solar power, for local food security, barter and drinkable water;
  • provides training for drivers in tyre changing; vehicle service and panel replacement, and the raffle of repaired, roadworthy cars to ensure cost-effective, good and proper cars driven in our communities
  • Provide training in “around the house” maintenance through voluntary involvement in repairing homes of the elderly and destitute, fixing our town while sharing skills and practical training with the view to creating more self-employed business owners and entrepreneurs
  • Provide training through the making of urban farm table gardens, solar cookers, solar desiccators, solar water purifiers, compost, plant cuttings and other related nursery skills.
  • Using the harvested Carbon Tax Credits sold to the local and international farmers and business owners to reduce the Carbon Footprint in the Valley, and together with the municipality from savings on landfill airspace and municipal expenses, help fund community programs such as animal welfare, relevant education including funding of above-mentioned practical programs, school sports and maintain the road and verges in and around the town.
  • To introduce the French-invented Electroculture to the community for further study and consideration, and also to make available Biochar from the eastern cape, which will capture and retain the minerals and phosphates in the soils used by the local farmers, both of which will create massive financial and environmental savings on the land.
  • Introducing a Guardian neighbourhood watch uses the Guardian collection vehicles and only locals to drive around and be the eyes and ears of the Police, and each other, ensuring the minimum loss of operational security to non-residents. The Police will then only be invited into the communities as required, increasing visible security in areas that do need more regular inspections and allowing for more of the existing public nuisance laws to be applied in the centre of town.
  • Guardians also intend to roll out a type of handyman insurance, using the collective power of group participation to have repairs attended to, and correctly repaired the first time. Ensuring accountability in the Valley, the funds are in a pot that covers the callout and if necessary, legal fees if needed to have the job done correctly.

 Reaching the following generations by creating work for their parents leading to an inclusive and workable community-driven and locally focused, inclusive and non-racial, strong economy providing human dignity to all, the modules are managed by qualified and experienced locals, ensuring through skills training and onsite experience, the expansion of skills and human dignity to all in the community.   

Projections show that for 1 module of 5 000 Silver or Tier two Guardians will create, and support, several small yet safe, supervised and weatherproof manual processing facilities adjacent to challenged communities, where collectively: 

• 7000 employment opportunities are created, being a mixture of permanent, casual and self-employment opportunities suitable for skilled, unskilled and commercially unemployable people, with and without their own vehicles and equipment. 

• 60 000 kilograms of dry property for recycling, recovery and re-distribution • 200 000 kilograms of Bokashi-treated, organic and compostable materials 

• R1.3 million-plus worth of local benefits and stimulation. 

• 260 Carbon Tax Credits @ R120 ea and Landfill Airspace credit units @ R15 000 ea (Estimated values) 

• 260 x 120 Carbon Tax Credit = R31 200; 260 x 15 000 Landfill Airspace unit = R3 900 000 (R3.9 million) which we want to use as outlined for the bigger picture of animal welfare, food, sport, education, entrepreneurial and community support as well as road maintenance. 

Please note that each fully supported module will create at least the same or similar local benefits. 

The only losers as a result of the application of this program within any given community are those that are exploitive, reactive and crime-reliant, so watch closely who complains as this program is discussed, and/or rolled out.
