From time immemorial, human beings have always been waste generators. According to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996), everyone has a right to an environment that is not harmful to their health and wellbeing, in addition to having the environment protected, for the benefit of the present and future generations. Sustainable and integrated waste management is a preferred way of managing waste and combines a range of collection and treatment methods to handle all materials in the waste stream in an environmentally effective, economically affordable and socially acceptable way.
