Waste Management Business Models in South Africa : A Profile of Waste Management in South African Cities
Due to the recent changes reflected in the National Environmental Management: Waste Act 59 of 2008, the waste sector in South Africa is not yet formalised. These changes encourage the diversion of waste to landfill by avoiding, reducing, re-using, recycling, and processing used materials. This significant change in focus has created opportunities for public and private participants. According to the 2012 Baseline Report, 59,353,910 tonnes of waste was generated in South Africa in 2011. Of this, 10% was diverted from landfills. This study attempts to identify and profile current and future key business models for waste management in the 3 major cities of Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Tshwane.
Country Overview—South Africa
The South African waste sector is not a formal economic sector; as a result, only a limited amount of data is available and, by extension, insight.
- The waste sector is managed by a few large participants that focus on providing consultation services and end-of-pipe products and services, including collection, recycling, and disposal to landfill.
- However, over the past decade, the number of participants in the waste sector has increased considerably as a direct result of the changes reflected in the National Environmental Management: Waste Act (NEM:WA, Act 59 of 2008).
