Africa’s most comprehensive waste event covering all areas of waste management and business opportunities!
African Waste Week is a collaboration between Thebe Reed Exhibitions and Osiba Management. These two-industry leading companies have joined forces to develop Africa’s most valuable, comprehensive waste management conference and expo.
The event’s primary objective is to show-case the significant business potential Africa’s waste streams can create. South Africa’s Department of Science & Technology believes that through investment in the sector and development and implementation of directed waste research, development and innovation, South Africa can grow its waste and recycling industry from its current R15.3b a year, or 0.51% of GDP in 2012, to between 1% and 1.5% of GDP.
