National Environmental Management: Waste Act 59 of 2008 

  1. National Pricing Strategy for Waste Management. Published in GG 40200 Notice Number 904 dated 11 August 2016.

The NPSWM is a legislative requirement of Section 13A (1) of the

National Environmental Management: Waste Amendment Act (Act No. 26 of

2014), hereafter referred to as the “Waste Amendment Act”. In terms of

section 13B, an Act of Parliament to give effect to the pricing strategy,

including details on 13B(b) determination of waste management charges and

the review of these waste management charges from time to time. Section

13B(c) includes procedures for collection through the national fiscal

system. In line with the requirements of the Waste Amendment Act, this

strategy contains guiding methodologies for the setting of waste

management charges, aimed at funding the re-use, recycling or recovery of

waste, including –

 

– the identification, further development and promotion of best

practices

 

– implementation of approved guidelines, norms and standards

 

– management of the disbursements of incentives

 

– monitoring of the impacts of incentives and disincentives

 

– including in previously disadvantaged communities

 

  • the implementation of industry waste management plans for

those activities that generate specific waste streams, including –

 

– the monitoring of the implementation and impact of industry waste

management plans

 

  • the operations of the Waste Management Bureau and the

implementation of Industry Waste Management Plans (IndWMP).

 

In line with the requirements of the Waste Amendment Act, this strategy provides guidelines for the setting of waste management charges aimed at funding the re-use, recycling or recovery of waste as well as the implementation of industry waste management plans for activities that generate specific waste streams. The selection and use of economic instruments must also be aligned with the “polluter pays principle” where all generators of waste (including businesses and households) are responsible for the costs of managing the waste generated.

 

This strategy essentially provides the State with yet another revenue stream from its tax payers and what will follow is that the Regulatory Departments will try and push through Regulations for revenue collection in line with this strategy as soon as possible. This has already been witnessed with the NOTICE TO THE PAPER AND PACKAGING INDUSTRY, ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC INDUSTRY AND LIGHTING INDUSTRY TO PREPARE AND SUBMIT TO THE MINISTER INDUSTRY WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANS FOR APPROVAL dated the 12th August 2016 which was later withdrawn on the 12th September 2016 by the Department of Environmental Affairs in order to pursue further consultation with the relevant industries.
