“Waste is divided into two classes based on the risk it poses – general waste and hazardous waste. General waste means waste that does not pose an immediate hazard or threat to health or the environment, and includes domestic waste; building and demolition waste; business waste; inert waste; or any waste classified as non-hazardous waste in terms of the regulations made under section 69, and includes non-hazardous substances, materials or objects within the business, domestic or building and demolition waste.”
Not all waste management solutions suit all waste streams. It is important to understand your waste streams, analyse and have them classified if they are not pre-classified, in order to help you select the most appropriate solution to either re-use, recycle, recover, treat or safely dispose of each stream.
By classifying each waste stream, you are determining whether it is hazardous based on the nature of its physical, health and environmental hazardous properties and the degree or severity of the hazard posed.
