Working with Waste – Guideline on Recycling of Solid Waste

This Guideline was published by the South African Department of Environmental Affairs & Tourism as one of a series of guidelines to assist municipalities in the implementation of the South African National Waste Management Strategy. Having said that, the Guidelines have considerable value to other stakeholders in the management of waste.

The 62 page, freely downloadable, booklet is packed with facts, information, explanatory graphics, key questions for each stage of the process for developing recycling programmes, Frequently Asked Questions, a sample waste stream audit protocol and a model memorandum of agreement for a recycling centre.
