We are a national on-site waste management company that specialises in recycling and the reduction of waste to landfill. That means that instead of sending waste to landfill, we sort and recycle as much as possible before sending your waste to landfill. Did you know that up to 90% of "waste" can be recycled?
What others consider rubbish can be split up into various waste streams, such as PET, TetraPak, glass and different types and grades of paper and cardboard.
Some of these waste streams are then sent off to producers, where they either start a new life cycle as a bottle or paper or are used as raw material to create products like roof tiles or building bricks.
Other waste streams, such as food waste or organic waste, will be sent to worm farms or similar installations where they can be converted to fertilised soil or liquid fertiliser. Garden waste will be turned into compost, and any other non-recyclable material will be used to make biofuel.
By implementing the above waste reduction processes, we save a tremendous amount of landfill space, save raw materials and reduce green house gasses.
WastePlan is the largest company of its kind in the Western Cape and the 2nd largest in South Africa. We believe in the value of relationships, and strive to maintain a healthy balance in our relationships with our clients, staff and recyclers. We manage our company in an ethically and environmentally responsible manner and promote these values internally and externally.
“Changing the way we think about waste”, is our motto, and we have been able to live up to this for just over 10 years (ask any of our clients).

We provide on-site recycling and waste management services to over 400 businesses, including hotels, distribution centres, factories, offices and shopping malls. Our services are site specific to our clients' needs, so we can take care of the various waste streams produced on the site while our clients focus on doing what they do best.
Our services include on-site sorting and cleaning, waste reduction, general, organic and hazardous waste removal, sustainable online reporting and more. It doesn't stop at just removing and recycling the waste from your site, but we help you comply with the government's environmental by-laws and optimise your waste stream as well.
A number of services are outlined on our commercial waste management page, but for more information, we'd suggest you speak to one of our sales people directly. They will be able to identify your needs and set up a package that will meet all of them.
WastePlan is contracted to residential recycling collections in several areas in Cape Town, for a total of 83 000 households. Because of these collections, we manage to divert 1 142995 kg of waste from landfill every month, and that number is growing by the day.
