At a site in Kraaifontein, in the Cape Town Metropole, just off the N1, is the first integrated waste management facility of its kind in South Africa. It comprises a refuse transfer station, a compaction hall, container handling operations, garden refuse chipping facilities, materials recovery facility, domestic recycling centre and a public drop-off. It also contains a workshop, wash bay, diesel storage, security facilities, entrance building and weighbridges. Provision has also been made for a future "resource park" and for the accommodation of future "alternative technologies", such as waste to energy.
