WASTE MANAGEMENT
TODAY

South Africa’s dumping dilemma

  • South Africa’s 826 landfill sites take in 98 million tonnes of waste each year.
  • Just less than 39% of general waste is recycled and more than 61% treated or landfilled, while just 6% of hazardous waste is re-used or recycled and 94% treated or
  • landfilled.
  • South Africa’s waste industry needs to strike a balance between the primary need to provide basic waste management services and the need to introduce costly alternative technologies to divert waste away from disposal at landfills.

Cleaning up wasteful practises

  • When considering the life cycle of waste management, South Africa still lags about 20-30 years behind developed
    countries.
  • Our waste management industry is constantly developing and can be counted as one that is most efficient within the African continent.
  • The World Bank forecasts that waste generation in sub-Saharan Africa will reach 516 million tons per year in 2050.

Global waste realities

  • The global waste management market was valued at $1,612.0 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $2,483.0 billion by 2030.
  • Growth of the global waste management market is driven by proactive government measures to reduce illegal dumping.
  • The United States is one of the largest producers of waste in the world, generating about 2.58kg per person per day.

A WORLD OF POTENTIAL IN
WASTE MANAGEMENT

South Africa is currently the 15th largest global producer of waste. With less land available for landfill sites and less water free for processing waste, the solution to our growing problem lies in a strong group effort, the fostering of innovative ideas, and developing sustainable action plans.

Within our masses of waste lie great opportunities, as has been demonstrated by numerous South African industry leaders. These various companies have used the need for sustainable waste management to generate profits, savings and positive public images.

The benefits of sustainable and responsible waste management are far reaching and affect multiple industry sectors. Local municipalities are struggling with the demand for effective waste management, allowing room for private industries to take matters into their own hands. Advanced Swedish technologies such as Thermo-Fusion have yet to be implemented in our country and hold tremendous potential. Our current systems can easily be built upon and improved, providing a sound base for upcoming projects. The longer the delay the larger the problem becomes, impacting human and environmental health. As Statistics South Africa says, “Recycling aids in conserving energy, saves natural resources and reduces pollution.”
