3 TAPPSA CONFERENCE Waste management legislation and how some sections could affect the paper industry

4 LEGISLATION The National Environment Waste Act (No 59 of 2008) and Draft National Waste Management Strategy Licencing -Part 7 of the Act provides for IndWMP’s -Paper and packaging targeted first (low hanging fruit) -Consulted with overseas expert (David Perchard) -Cost 88,000 pounds (R1,2m) -This cost borne largely by PACSA, Buyisa-e-Bag and RAG (Recovery Action Group)

5 Waste management heirarchy

6 Recycling Targets Paper will propose a target of 63% to be achieved in 2015 (2016??) -Competition for recyclables

7 STATISTICS South African Paper Recovery Rate

8 Challenges Effect of the economy The term recycling vs recovery Definition of waste

9 Challenges cont. PIKITUP - Contracted out – no sorting Clean ups – 63,000 bags go straight to landfill Not practising what they preach

10 LICENCING Licensing requirements Costs thereof Barrier to entry (MRF’s, entrepreneurs, buy back centres) Competition for recyclable paper -Rather than look at tariff levies, sell recyclables -Composting - 55,000 carbon 13 USD per credit!! -CT entrepreneur – ceiling insulation complained to CoCT Outlying areas (OR Tambo municipality, Eastern Cape)

11 Current status (from Govt perspective) Are relevant parties ready and clear as to what they are expected to do in terms of part 7 of the Act Is the current draft NWMS able to achieve/or has it achieved its intended purpose? The document (Waste Act) was prepared prematurely, prior to completion of the NWMS The document is generic hence not addressing the needs of a specific industry sector

12 Current status cont.. Deemed a starting document Public comment closed 11 August 2010 Being reviewed Align the Act with NWMS Improve the section on the preparation of IndWMP and decision making Written at too high a level, no detail on what to do Improve guidance on stakeholder consultation

13 Current status cont Discuss the amended version with stakeholders Finalise the document in the government fiscal year 2010/2011 Adopt in 2011/2012 Final word “Don’t do plans until Section 28 has been finalised” “If you have done it, keep it aside until comes into effect, then submit”

14 Preparing to meet requirements Joint ventures with other waste streams Intensifying education and awareness campaigns - Spread knowledge with adjustment to consumer behaviour as an outcome -Change mindsets : an inconvenient change in lifestyle; don’t think one person can make a difference -Learn from small -Meeting with Minister Basic Education – school curriculum - Training potential entrepreneurs Challenge traditional thinking e.g. Competitions – prize for school with the LEAST amount of waste

15 Preparing to meet requirements Consulting with relevant brand owners to standardise colour coding for the various waste streams

16 Preparing to achieve target Separation at Source -Driving this message at every opportunity -More and more officials from government are on the same page. -Municipalities are incorporating provision of separate receptacle for dry waste (recyclables)
