Welcome to the South African Waste Information Centre!
This Waste Information Centre provides the public, business, industry and government with access to information on the management of waste in South Africa.
The Centre also provides users with access to the South African Waste Information System (SAWIS).
Waste Information System
The South African Waste Information System (SAWIS) developed by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) in 2005, is a system used by government and industry to capture routine data on the tonnages of waste generated, recycled and disposed of in South Africa on a monthly and annual basis.
Required data providers to the system, may access SAWIS through the 'Login' on the right of this screen.
Publicly available reports generated from SAWIS are available through SAWIC 'Waste in South Africa'.
