Need help with waste analysis?

Recently new legislation was introduced which has placed more focus on ensuring stockpiles, mine dumps and general waste management are environmentally complaint.

With effect from 24 July 2015, the establishment and reclamation of mine dumps and stockpiles of mining waste from or incidental to a mining operation, must comply with new regulations regarding the planning and management of residue stock piles and residue deposits from a prospecting, mining, exploration or production operation (Mining Residue Regulations) published under the National Environmental Management: Waste Act 59 of 2008 (NEM: WA).

The implications of the new regulations furthermore are that stockpiles must comply with landfill requirements and also comply with the National Norms and Standards for the Assessment of Waste for Landfill Disposal, 2013; and National Norms and Standards for Disposal of Waste to Landfill, 201.
