As part of our zero waste to landfill approach, we strive to empower organisations to increase their recycling and recovery rates. Our waste management strategies are designed to maximise recycling by streamlining the sorting and recycling process. Delta Waste Management uses sorting facilities to extract the following materials from general waste:
WASTE REMOVAL AND SORTING
Delta Waste Management removes, transfers, and processes generated waste. This entails collecting waste and transporting it to a dedicated on-site Waste Sorting Facility (WSF). These facilities are designed to collect a mixture of solid waste which is divided into various categories. The services provided by a WSF includes the manual sorting of solid waste materials into different waste streams, storage and regular disposal of hazardous solid waste, weekly disposal of solid waste materials (excluding recyclables and hazardous materials) and recycling of paper, plastic, glass and metal solid waste materials on a weekly basis.
We also encourage separation-at-source initiatives where waste is sorted into different recyclable streams at the source where it is generated. In this case, we collect waste designated for recycling and disposal. All collected waste is sorted, disposed of, recycled, and transported according to national waste legislature and environmental best practices.
Our composting services further contribute to minimising waste to landfill. This provides an ideal alternative solution to the disposal of organic waste material such as garden waste, food waste, wood waste and other manufactured biodegradables. Delta Waste Management’s composting facilities make use of a specialized Rotating Composting Vessel (RCV) to safely decompose these materials at an accelerated rate.
This method offers additional control over the composting process as waste is processed within an enclosed vessel. As a result, the composting system has shortened active and curing phases, enabling us to produce a high-quality compost in a shorter period of time. This mineral-rich soil can be used to cultivate vegetation.
The Delta Group also owns a small-scale worm farm that receives and digests food waste to create a highly concentrated organic liquid fertilizer known as vermileachate. It contains nutrients and microbes that stimulate plant growth and improve plant health.
HAZARDOUS WASTE TRANSPORTATION
We provide the efficient removal and transportation of hazardous waste to relevant destinations. This refers to waste that poses potential or substantial threats to the environment or public health and well-being. Examples of hazardous waste include paints, pesticides, electronic equipment, batteries, chemicals, healthcare waste, pharmaceuticals, aerosols, and fluorescent tubes.
Upon collection, this waste is weighed and transferred to a designated bin. It is then transported and disposed of according to safety disposal regulations. All staff involved in the transportation and disposal of hazardous waste are given appropriate training as well as PPE. Certificates of safe disposal are provided.
WASTE REDUCTION STRATEGIES
Delta Waste Management seeks to optimize the waste management strategies of our clients and provide a return on waste infrastructure investment. This involves conducting regular audits of waste generated to determine waste stream volumes and possible areas where waste can be reduced by the introduction of new systems or products.
Our experienced team can suggest and implement the relevant waste reduction strategies. We pride ourselves on continuous involvement and the same project team that is assigned to a project remains responsible for it from inception to completion. This continuous involvement not only ensures a higher level of service to our clients, but it also places us in the ideal situation to offer long-lasting assistance on waste reduction strategies.
