SA Waste Snapshot 2013


The Urban Earth South African Waste Snapshot collates recent information on waste in South Africa in an easy to understand way. Information for this Snapshot has been compiled using data from the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and various non-profit recycling organisations in South Africa.

Drawing on the DEA's recently released National Waste Information Baseline Report, the Snapshot provides the most up to date statistics on the amount of waste generated and landfilled in South Africa. Furthermore, the Snapshot summarises statistics on recyclable materials that have been recorded by non-profit organisations in the last few years. 

The snapshot uses graphs, tables and short written summaries to provide an accessible overview of waste in South Africa.
