The coming into effect of the National Environmental Management has brought about a significant policy shift for waste management in Africa. This introduced the waste management hierarchy approach which advocates for waste avoidance, reduction, reuse, recycling, recovery as priority options before treatment and disposal of waste, which is the last resort.

NEMA serves as one of the catalysts aimed at fast tracking the implementation of integrated waste management systems as envisaged by the paper bags use and introduction of biodegradable alternatives thus emphasis on management of waste throughout its life cycle.

However, waste management can and will only be possible if both public and private sectors work close.
