Today, Buhle Waste is a family business that is 100% black-owned and managed. Over the 20 years we have gained experience and developed expertise in the management of general, industrial, hazardous and medical waste.

the industry instils confidence in risk and compliance departments with the firm knowledge that they know where their waste is at any given time; our technological advancements are revolutionising the way in which business leaders talk about their own environmental contribution – we are taking the industry on a zerowaste-to-landfill journey. Buhle Waste is the market leader in the waste management industry. Buhle Waste (Pty) Ltd has set upon the difficult but rewarding journey of achieving a zero-waste-to-landfill objective for all waste streams we manage. It is a business imperative that considers the environmental impact of our activities more than

just our economic well-being. Additionally, the value contribution this journey will make towards employment activity in the waste industry and its environmental impact is substantial. South Africa has some of the most stringent waste management regulations in the world. However, the behaviour of most South Africans is not in line with the strict regulations or the global trends. Therefore, the burden of managing the waste in accordance with the country’s regulation rests on the waste industry. This results in an over-reliance on the industry to utilise landfill sites as a cost-effective waste disposal method; the costeffectiveness comes at the expense

of employment opportunities and economic activity. At Buhle Waste we are fully aware of the perils of overusing landfill sites – the environmental impact and the land debate in South Africa implore us to make alternative considerations. Over the years we have invested in technologies, processes and capacitating our staff to achieve our zero-waste-to-landfill objective. Managing multiple waste streams means we have had to make great investments in technologies for hazardous waste management; our investments in processes have been targeted at general and industrial waste; and we have equipped our people to deal with a plethora of questions and tasks from our clients
