It’s time to wake up to the waste problem

2008-06-30 00:00

WHAT’S up with the municipality? The short answer is: I’m not sure. Questions directed three weeks ago to strategic executive manager for community service Zwe Hulane, head of waste management Richard Rajah and the municipal spokesperson about the city’s plans for waste minimisation and concerns around a lack of recycling facilities for the general public went unanswered.

Despite “in principle” acceptance of the plan by Exco, Whyte was forced to abandon the project in early 2006 after council insisted that the new Municipal Finance Management Act necessitated that the process be put out to tender. The tender requirements rendered the project unviable, forcing Whyte’s partners to pull out. Millions of rands in investment were lost to the city and Whyte took his intellectual property and expertise to Durban. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
