WASTE MANAGEMENT REPORT

STUDY FOR SUSTAINABLE RESORT IN MPUMALANGA, SOUTH AFRICA

A nature reserve committed to implementing more sustainable practices.

 

One of the largest challenges in the hospitality sector is waste management. Reserves cater to a large number of guests as well as staff on-site and waste generation is often a problem facing reserves and hotels. It is especially a concern when the sensitive ecosystems which are home to game reserves can be so negatively affected by incorrect waste management practices. 

 

The focus of this research report is to investigate the current practices at the reserve, identify problematic aspects and develop the most appropriate solutions to waste management in the reserve. The goal is to develop a closed-loop waste management plan which omits reliance on unreliable and unsustainable external solutions such as municipal landfills. The intention is to develop the simplest, most practical and efficient way of managing the waste generated at the reserve as well as creating an awareness of our impact on the environment. 

 

Nature doesn’t create waste as such. Everything in nature is used up in a closed-loop, continuous cycle with waste being the end of the beginning. The goal is to understand the processes from cradle to cradle to create a sustainable closed-loop system. 

This project was done on behalf of Luxury Frontiers for one of their clients.
