Environmental Liability Services Ltd. - Consultancy for Environmental Protection - waste

Keywords: waste, waste management, Environmental Protection

Economic growth over the past few decades has been matched by increased depletion of resources such as land-take, wood, water, fuels and ores with resulting increases in the amount of wastes that society produces.

The Waste Management Act, 1996 defines waste as any substance the holder discards intends to discard or is required to discard. In addition, anything which is discarded or otherwise dealt with as if it were waste, shall be presumed to be waste until the contrary is proven. Therefore any material that is surplus to the immediate requirements of a particular operation is by definition waste. The fact that the material may be useful or have a monetary value has no bearing on whether it is a waste.

ELS offers an integrated approach to assist our clients to manage all wastes arising from their activities. Our strategic waste planning services offer assistance with the management of the principal waste streams which may be summarised as:

  • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
  • Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Waste
  • Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste
  • Agricultural Waste and
  • Hazardous Waste
