Buhle Waste is a second generation family business that is 100% black-owned and managed. We strive to achieve excellence in all of our business activities in the communities in which we operate. As such, we strive to be an embodiment of Ubuntu, knowing that it takes a community to help a business succeed. Our business has been founded on the belief that our homes and cities must be beautiful spaces; a love for our people should be fostered; and respect for our environment should be maintained. We strive for beauty, love and respect in all that we do and our vision is a reflection of that: to keep Africa clean and disease-free, as it becomes an economic powerhouse, by using the best waste management systems and technologies.

Since its inception, Buhle Waste has developed and acquired some of the market’s leading technologies and intellectual property protocols to become a wholly integrated waste management service provider. We manage all waste streams including, but not limited to, general, industrial, chemical, hazardous, medical and sanitation waste, from provision of waste receptacles to collection and treatment of waste at our approved and licenced facilities. Our strategic partnerships enable us to design and manufacture waste containers to specification, provide HPCSA-accredited and HWSETA-certified medical waste training for our clients and most importantly, track our clients’ waste ‘from cradle to grave’.

Over the years, Buhle Waste has grown from a small business operating just two trucks in Ekurhuleni to a business with more than 350 staff members and a fleet of over 70 trucks operating nationally. The year 2017 marks our 20th year of operating as a business and this achievement has only been possible through the perseverance, resilience and dedication of the Buhle Waste community – our staff, our clients, our partners.



We have a student sponsorship programme, currently sponsoring three full-time students who are completing their undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Environmental Sciences.

We have sponsored community events in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality for activities geared towards health and wellness of the community members such as fun runs, sports days and the like.

We have sponsored clinics in the Limpopo Province with medical equipment to further assist the nursing staff with their duties.
