The R230 million multi-purpose Kraaifontein Waste Management Facility (KWMF) is the first large-scale 'green-fields' refuse transfer station (1 000 tonnes/day) in South Africa that is integrated with a mechanised materials recovery facility (100 tonnes/day), receiving co-mingled recyclables separated and collected at source. As a fully integrated waste management facility it also encompasses a public drop-off, a greens management facility, offices, a workshop, wash-bays and provision for future 'energy-from-waste' technologies.
