Existing legislation, guidelines and published methodologies for public participation in the environmental field, and waste management in particular, are woefully inadequate. This paper suggests a way forward. The advent of democracy and heightened environmental awareness in the 1990s in South Africa has spawned considerable public pressure for environmental projects and particularly waste management projects. While there are a number of publications and public participation scoping and facilitation consultants, very little guidance exists for the practising engineer. If one is unfamiliar with public participation, how does one go about incorporating public participation in a civil engineering project?
