Welcome to African Waste Week 2015

Dear Waste Industry Colleagues

South Africa, and indeed Africa, is awakening to the vast commercial value in the waste economy. As recently as May 2015 the Minister for Environmental Affairs has stated that reducing, recovering and minimising waste provides opportunities for socio-economic development including the development of new jobs and business opportunities.

South Africa’s waste sector alone is worth R50b with many experts suggesting this could double with the right focus.

Thebe Reed Exhibitions and Osiba Holdings are proud to announce their collaboration on African Waste Week – a 4-day event made up of a conference, an exhibition and detailed workshops.

African Waste Week is an evolution of Wastex 2013 and has been designed to focus directly on the business opportunities that exist within the waste sector – not only in South Africa but across the continent and the globe. Throughout the 4 days attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to realise the economic benefit of various waste streams.

  • Are you a waste producer looking to neutralise the cost of your waste?
  • Are you a waste recycler looking for lucrative feedstock opportunities? 
  • Are you an entrepreneur looking for exciting new business opportunities? 


If you are answered yes to any of these questions then you need to join the industry in Cape Town this September.

We are proud to announce that African Waste Week will be supported and endorsed by these key industry organisations and associations:
