National Integrated Waste Management Act

We support the National Integrated Waste Management Act because

“Privately applying the National Integrated Waste Management Act, ignored since 2010, which protects our property rights; enforces the separation at source needed for local sustainable crime fighting, and reduces our national Carbon Impact while saving the municipalities millions in waste related overheads may provide our children with the safe, clean and liveable, development-capable environment our constitution guarantees our children - and all South African Citizens”.

The big deal is that

  1. while the Constitution protects our rights to own property and to compensation if expropriated for public benefit purposes, only the NIWMA (National Integrated Waste Management Act) specifies that 
  2. we are to remove our property from the waste stream before municipal collection takes place, and that 
  3. Municipalities are only responsible for our waste, not our property.

While you will find the full definition of property below, we are specifically speaking of wet, dry, and waste property that you own and what you may do with it.

"Property" refers to anything that is owned or possessed by a person, group, or entity. It can be a tangible item, such as a house, car, or piece of land, or it can be intangible, such as stocks, bonds, or intellectual property rights.

In the legal sense, property includes the rights, interests, and privileges associated with ownership. This can include the right to use, sell, lease, or transfer the property.

Property can be privately owned or publicly owned by the government or other entities.

There are different types of property, including real property and personal property. Real property refers to land and anything permanently attached to it, such as buildings or natural resources. Personal property, on the other hand, includes movable possessions like vehicles, furniture, or electronics.

Property rights are protected by laws and regulations that govern ownership, possession, and use.

These laws vary from country to country and can dictate how property is acquired, transferred, or inherited, as well as the rights and responsibilities of owners.

Overall, property encompasses a wide range of assets that individuals or entities possess, and it plays a significant role in various aspects of society, including economics, law, and individual rights.
