Local company solves food-waste problem

SA-owned environmental services company Oricol Environmental Services takes waste from the food production industry and turns it into a cost-effective resource for smallholders and farmers.

Through its waste management contracts with a number of large food production companies, Oricol takes delivery of raw food waste as well as products that, for a number of reasons, are no longer fit for human consumption.

New waste management legislation puts spotlight on corporates

The recent legislation that bans the dumping of liquid waste at landfill sites in South Africa has been described as the start of a “massive shift” in waste management in the country.

The law, which came into effect on 22 August 2019, was ratified after a six-year transitional period that allowed for the waste industry to put the necessary measures in place in order to comply with the new regulations.

The new regulations have not only put into sharp relief the importance of compliance by waste industry operators, but it has also highlighted the importance of corporate responsibility with regards to waste management.

Moreover, it has also shifted the focus to the greater role that innovation will play in ensuring the environment is protected for future generations.
