3.6 Priority wastes

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /var/www/sites/wastepolicy.co.za/modules/book/book.module on line 560.

Declaration of a priority waste is one of the more interventionist measures which can be implemented in terms of the Waste Act, primarily because the consequent waste management measures can severely limit or prohibit the generation of the waste, may require detailed registration and reporting on the waste, may limit its import and export, and ultimately culminate in a waste being phased out completely. The criteria for declaring a priority waste therefore need to be considered very carefully.
