Durban Street Sweeper Hire

Street sweepers can be used to clean the streets of debris and litter, as well as to clear snow and ice. They can also be used to prepare a surface before construction begins, or to prepare a surface after construction has been completed. They utilize brushes that brush the ground to clear away dirt and other materials.

Garbage trucks are used to collect garbage from homes, businesses and other places. Garbage trucks are usually large vehicles that can carry large amounts of garbage at a time. They have large bins on the back of them where the garbage is stored until it reaches its final destination.

There are many different types of garbage trucks but they all have one thing in common: they collect garbage. Some garbage trucks may be smaller or larger than others, but their purpose is still the same – to collect garbage from your home or business and take it away forever!

Give our sales staff a call if you are unsure which of our truck configurations will best meet your needs; they will be more than pleased to help you make your decision.

Waste Management Durban

In KZN, solid waste is normally buried in sanitary landfills, also called dumps. It’s considered that landfill gases contribute to environmental damage and global warming.

Local governments must collect, process, and dispose of household garbage and provide an equal service to their communities. General landfills take nonhazardous building, garden, and household garbage. Local governments own and maintain these places. Because many landfills lack funding and capacity, up-to-date information is not readily available.

eThekwini (Durban) 

eThekwini has 3 landfills.

  1. La Mercy, 35 miles from Durban.
  2. Bisasar Road, 7 km from Durban’s CBD (Central Business District).
  3. 20km west of the CBD is Mariannhill.

The Mariannhill landfill has a 4.4 million cubic metre capacity and receives 850 tonnes of garbage a day. This landfill should last till 2024. Leachate therapy is also available (the liquid that oozes from waste when mixed with water or other liquids). On-site pilot recycling recycles various materials.

uMhlatuze (Empangeni – Richards Bay) (Empangeni – Richards Bay)
Empangeni-Richards Bay has landfills near Empangeni Rail. This state-licensed site is at capacity. Richards Bay dump site near Alton’s old sewage plant is full. Empangeni and Richards Bay are reaching capacity, hence a regional dump near Empangeni is being considered.

uMhlathuze’s regional site is next to the Empangeni dump. The site will be run by the District Municipality in a public/private collaboration. Existing trash facilities in uMhlathuze Municipality don’t meet industrial waste needs. By 2018, this plant should be able to handle 583,530 tonnes of garbage.

The above cities’ arrangements are typical of many municipalities in the province that have solid and liquid waste landfills. Pietermaritzburg, Newcastle, Ladysmith, Stanger, Port Shepstone, and Howick have designated landfills and control trash collection and disposal to the best of their ability and resources. Smaller municipalities use contractors to transport waste to larger cities’ regional sites.

According to 1998 baseline research, there may approximately 15,000 unreported rural communal sites. Many illegal waste disposal sites have developed over the years due to lack of collection services, long transport distances to formal disposal sites, public or industry refusal to pay landfill fees, excessive bureaucracy and costs in waste disposal services, indifference or disbelief in the published environmental consequences of poor waste handling and disposal, and lack of waste education and awareness.

South Africa lacks provincial and national waste information systems, so data on re-used, reduced, and recycled garbage is scarce.

Transporting solid waste is a significant road transport undertaking in the province, with more than 4 million cubic metres (about 1.5 million tonnes) transported per year. This number is rising steadily due to urbanisation, increased regulation, and increasing reliance on urban and local authorities to dispose of waste properly.
