The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) held their annual awards ceremony on the 17th of November 2016 and our Mr Chris Whyte has received the Individual Trophy award for his outstanding contribution;


"USE-IT diverted 10256 tons, representing 30,619m3 of waste from landfill in the 2014-2015 financial year.  The estimated cost of landfill airspace in eThekwini is given by DSW as R300/m3, this equates to a saving to landfill of R9,185,700 - a saving of R4,59 for every Rand in operational funding received from eThekwini last year.


This is no easy task, requiring the constant determination from Chris Whyte to ensure the successful implementation of projects through communication and understanding between government, business and the market.  A circular waste economy at its best. Chris Whyte from USE-IT is to be congratulated on being awarded the Individual Trophy in the KZN Waste Management Awards 2016 recognizing his commitment and passion to waste management."
