Frequently Asked Questions – www.shoppostwink.co.za
Do the Online prices include VAT? And delivery costs?
YES! the Online store's prices shown are per unit, including VAT but prices do exclude the delivery costs.
Delivery Costs are calculated on Check-Out, depending on your delivery address location and the size of your order. Note that Shipping to Cape Town , Johannesburg and Pretoria addresses, where orders are a minimum of R2,000, will automatically have a free shipping.
Can I order the entire Postwink range of products on this website?
The short answer is no. The recycling bins, bag liners and/or posters on the Online shop include only those items we keep stock of, and therefore, it excludes the likes of the INOX stainless steel units, the Monochrome bins, the Leather-touch bins, the Titanic, and the Recycling Igloo (among others) – all of which are very popular recycling bins for our commercial clients, but are manufactured on order. To enquire about these units, please email email@example.com.
Are the Fabric-coated cardboard bins sold individually or in sets, and can I change the colours of the Fabric-coated bins?
The Fabric-coated cardboard bins are sold individually (so the units prices on the Online store are per unit, not per set), and these are pre-printed as follows: Blue for Paper, Yellow for Plastic, Green for Glass, Red for Tin Cans, Black for General Waste and Green for Recyclable waste. To change the colours or wording of these units, or to add a logo, we require a minimum order of 30 units per colour; and these are ordered via headoffice. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for your quote.
What colours do you use for the various Recycling Labels?
Although there is no legal framework for the recycling colours, there are some "best practices". In South Africa (and hence at Postwink), the colours used are as follows:
-Blue for Paper ; -Red for Tin Cans ; -Green for Glass (we use a light green); -Yellow for Plastic; -Brown for Composting/Food waste; -Green for Mixed Dry Recyclables (we use a bright green); -Black for "General Waste" - which normally refers to the contaminated waste not recycled and not composted. Postwink uses a charcoal colour for aesthetic reasons.
Can Postwink deliver internationally?
Using the Online Shop www.shoppostwink.co.za, you will not be able to order for an order to be delivered outside of South Africa.
That said, we can arrange deliveries to Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Zambia and Lesotho, but these orders need to be placed with our headoffice, via email@example.com.
