Abstract
These Regulations - (a) prescribe the manner in which a person or a category of persons may apply to the Minister for the exclusion of a waste stream or a portion of waste stream for beneficial use from the definition of waste; (b) exclude permitted uses of a waste stream or a portion of waste stream from the definition of waste; and (c) promote diversion of waste from landfill disposal to its beneficial use. These Regulations do no exempt a holder of any waste which has been excluded from the definition of waste from complying with any other applicable legislation. The waste streams set out in the Register (list of waste stream or a portion of a waste stream excluded from the definition of waste and restricted to the identified permitted uses therein) published on the South African Waste Information Centre are excluded from the definition of waste. The Regulations set out who may apply for exclusion and the criteria and procedures for exclusion (by the Minister of Environmental Affairs). Where a waste stream or a portion of a waste stream has been excluded from the definition of waste in terms of these Regulations, such a waste stream or a portion of a waste stream must be managed in terms of the risk management plan developed under these Regulations. An applicant shall undertake a risk assessment and submit a risk management plan demonstrating that the intended beneficial use of the excluded waste can be managed in such a way as to ensure that the intended beneficial use will not result in significant adverse impacts on the environment.
