  • The desired end state entails identifying priorities and goals that a municipality wishes to attain with regards to its waste management. Using the information collected on the historical and present waste management situation, strategic goals for the IWMP should be developed.

  • A municipality must undertake to identify different alternatives and should indicate the different approaches that it will employ to achieve the desired end state.

  • The Waste Act, section 11 (7b) states that, "a municipality must before finalizing its integrated waste management plan, follow the consultative process contemplated in section 29 of the Municipal System Act, either as a separate process or as part of the consultative process relating to its IWMP contemplated in that section".

  • The partnerships, legislative instruments, economic instruments and a financial plan appropriate to the IWMP will be established in consultation with stakeholders.

  • Each municipal council must, within a prescribed period after the start of its elected term, adopt a single, inclusive and strategic plan for the development of the municipality

  • A framework by which the plan will be monitored should be developed. This should identify the tasks/ targets and roles and responsibilities in order to ensure implementation. A description of the evaluation and review process to be instituted for the IWM plan should be given.
