It is a sad fact that the collection and transportation of waste costs South Africa over half-a-BILLION rand every year! Therefore the focus of the new R135 million Electron Road Waste Management Facility in Durban is to move waste management towards a more sustainable municipal service - one that meets new national waste regulatory requirements, reduces waste transportation costs, provides employment opportunities, allows waste to be effectively diverted from landfill, and enhances the beneficial recycling of waste.
This facility, which is located north of Durban Central near the Umgeni River, just south of Umgeni Road and just east of the N2 national road, is one of the first large-scale greenfield waste management facilities in South Africa that includes a refuse transfer station (RTS).
