Solid Waste Management

Overview

Functions and power of district municipalities are outlined in Section 84(1) of the Municipal Structures Act as: (e) Solid waste disposal sites, in so far as it relates to: i. the determination of a waste disposal strategy; ii. the regulation of waste disposal; iii. the establishment, operation and control of waste disposal sites, bulk waste transfer facilities and waste disposal facilities for more than one local municipality in the district.

The waste management function resides within the environmental management section of the ODM. In terms of waste management the Environmental Management section will strive to achieve the following:

· Regional Waste Forum

The Overberg District Municipality convene a Regional Waste Forum that includes representation from all the Local Municipalities as well as Provincial Government on a quarterly basis. The purpose of the forum is:

- To promote cooperation between Municipalities in order to improve Waste Management within the region;

- To share best practises and transferral of knowledge and information;

- To create a platform for which information can be gathered to feedback to the Provincial Waste Forum.

 

· Integrated Waste Management Plan:

You can view the IWMP here.

Section 11(4)(a) of the NEM: Waste Act states that:

Each municipality must –

(i) Submit its integrated waste management plan to the MEC for approval; and

(ii) include the approved integrated waste management plan in its integrated development plan contemplated in Chapter 5 of the Municipal Systems Act.

 

· Karwyderskraal Regional Landfill Site

The landfill facility renders a service to Overstrand and Theewaterskloof Municipalities for the final disposal of general household waste and the composting of green waste.
