Abstract / Description of output

In the 16 years since South Africa became a democracy, waste and its management have changed substantially, although—many would argue—not sufficiently. South Africa has a dualistic economy and unique waste legislation, including several significant policy changes since the 1900s. Landfills and their management have undergone controversy, and various key organizations and initiatives are being undertaken in South Africa.
