Waste Transport

We, SA Zero Waste, are very conscious about our environment and we go out of our way to make our world a better and safer place.

That is why we are also transporting your waste for you wherever you are. Our services of waste transport is everything from general and non-hazardous waste to hazardous waste, such as chemicals, oils etc. Before waste transport, we go through a process of separating the wet and dry waste for a more reliable, safe and efficient transport of the waste.

It is important to take note of what is going to waste, what is hazardous and what is non-hazardous to make our environment great again. If you do have any questions regarding waste transport, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Why Recycle?

Today, it can be quite time consuming for most of us to make sure that we are recycling and being environmentally conscious. But there has to come a time and place in one's life to realize to why recycle. Here are a few good reasons why everyone should start recycling.

  1. Recycling reduces excessive waste.
    To recycle gives the opportunity to a "second life" to materials like paper, plastics, glass, etc. By Diverting all these materials, we conserve landfill space and reduce pollutants such as methane gas and leachate.
  2. Recycling conserves resources
    Everything we purchase and use came from a material extracted from somewhere on the earth. Extraction of resources destroy the ecosystem and uses a lot of energy and water, but with recycling materials are being reused and reduced for the need for further extraction.
  3. Recycle to tackle climate change
    Reducing our waste, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide. Extraction, manufacturing and transportation of raw materials also cause global greenhouse gas emission, so by utilizing recycled materials requires less energy, which reduces emission and fights climate change.
  4. Recycle to save energy
    It takes less energy to manufacture a product from recycled materials than to manufacture a product from raw materials because the raw materials require more processing and refining than recycled materials. They should also be extracted, which uses an exceptional amount of energy. Using recycled materials also uses energy, but considerably less than the process for raw materials.

Hazardous Waste

What is hazardous waste?

Living in South Africa, we all know what waste is. Hazardous waste, on the other hand, can become a substantial or potential threat to our environment or to the public health in general.

There are a few hazardous waste materials that have the hazardous traits or at least known to have the hazardous trait. The hazardous traits of the hazardous materials are as follows:

  • Ignitability
  • Reactivity
  • Corrosivity
  • Toxicity

Hazardous wastes can actually be found in different physical states, namely: gas, liquids or solids. It is mainly a waste that cannot be disposed of by our every day by-products, so a process of treatment or solidification will be required, depending on the physical state of the waste.

We have to start being cautious about our environment, so let's stop wasting.

Sorting your waste

South Africa is not really big on sorting your waste, but it seriously needs to start changing. It is not as difficult as most people anticipate.

Sorting your waste can be done is so many different ways. Start off by categorising your waste by plastics, paper, compost, glass and anything that contains hazardous chemicals. There are a lot of companies that have weekly pickups for paper, plastic, glass and hazardous items, but that doesn't keep you from finding out where drop-off points are for those hazardous chemicals items that you so desperately want to get rid of, but luckily feeling to bad for the environment to throw it in the dustbin. Compost is easy to make at home, all you need is a compost bin or a corner in your garden for those unwanted fruits and vegetables and to top it off, you know how great compost is for your garden!

Let us start making a difference to our environment, make the earth a happy place again.
