Draft: Integrated Waste Management Plan

Introduction

The Bitou Local Municipality (BLM) is required to develop an Integrated Waste Management Plan (IWMP) as per the requirements of the National Environmental Management Waste Act (59 of 2008) as amended (hereafter referred to as the Waste Act). The IWMP must be endorsed by the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) and then incorporated into the municipal Integrated Development Plan (IDP).
In terms of the Municipal Systems Act, a municipality must give effect to the provisions of Section 152(1) and 153 of the Constitution and must:

  • Give priority to the basic needs of the local community;
  • Promote the development of the local community; and
  • Ensure that all members of the local community have access to at least the minimum level of available resources and the improvement of standards of quality over time.

GIBB Pty Ltd (hereafter referred to as GIBB) has been appointed for the revision of the Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) IWMP and the IWMPs for the seven local municipalities in the GRDM, namely:

  • Mossel Bay Local Municipality (MBLM);
  • Bitou Local Municipality (BLM);
  • George Local Municipality (GLM);
  • Hessequa Local Municipality (HLM);
  • Kannaland Local Municipality (KLLM);
  • Knysna Local Municipality (KLM); and
  • Oudtshoorn Local Municipality (OLM).
