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.
