“Implementing the Waste Hierarchy”




The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa herewith proudly announces our

24th WasteCon™ flagship Conference and Exhibition.


This premier showcase of best practice African waste management solutions will take place at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.


Waste management in South Africa is guided by the internationally accepted waste management hierarchy, which is implemented through the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008.


The waste management hierarchy indicates an order of preference for action to reduce and manage waste, and is usually presented diagrammatically in the form of a pyramid and captures the progression of a material or product through successive stages of waste management, and represents the latter part of the life-cycle for each product. All products and services have environmental impacts, from the extraction of raw materials for production to manufacture, distribution, use and disposal.


The aim of the waste management hierarchy is to extract the maximum practical benefits from products and to generate the minimum amount of waste. The proper application of the waste hierarchy can have several benefits, it can help prevent emissions of greenhouse gases, reduces pollutants, save energy, conserves resources, create jobs and stimulate the development of green technologies.
