As South Africa’s oldest and largest waste management company, managing the waste for most of South Africa’s significant private and public sector organisations, EnviroServ has always believed it has a responsibility to guide its clients through legislative demands on their organisations.
This is no simple task, as legislation is being updated all the time to take account of evolving best practice and modern ideas about sustainability. Also, legislation varies from one industry and region to another – and from one authority to another. There are often cases where municipal by-laws may override national or provincial legislation. Threading one’s way through the maze of legalities calls for specialist skills and we ensure that we have the best such skills.
EnviroServ's Technical Director (Treatement and Disposal Solutions) is Dr Johan Schoonraad, a chemist and scientist who works with a dedicated team of professional scientists and engineers to find appropriate solutions to complex hazardous waste and chemical pollution problems.
With extensive knowledge of environmental and waste legislation, he also offers insights and advice to people on a broad range of waste management issues.
